VBG has EU approved couplings for all types of transports, for eye dimensions 57, 50 and 40 mm. The product range includes reliable couplings intended for centre-axle trailers, dollies and trailers, as well as comfort couplings only intended for trailers with articulated drawbars.
All the parts in the coupling are designed for simple replacement. The replacement of a complete mechanism ensures safe and easy renovation. The entire coupling, internally also, is surface-treated with a zinc-manganese phosphatising process and ED finish to ensure the best possible corrosion protection.
The exterior of the coupling has a bright red powder coating to ensure improved resistance to abrasion and a high finish.
Signal and lock pin
All the couplings have a fully automatic signal and lock pin, with explicit indication of locked and open positions. One requirement for remote controlled couplings in accordance with ECE 55R is that warning lamps must be fitted in the cab. An easily installed position sensor and VBG’s Indicating kit provides the driver with information on whether the coupling is closed or open.
In addition to the excellent connection and disconnection characteristics, the rotating coupling bolt ensures a higher degree of structural strength and a longer service-life for both the coupling bolt and the bushings. The design incorporates splines on the lifting arm shaft, which enable several different handle angles.
The handle can easily be replaced, and the coupling can also easily be supplemented with the VBG Power actuator or AM unit. A jackknife alarm, coupling mouth extender, overload protection and protective insert are also available as accessories for VBG 750V/795V.
