HeavySim: Calculate swept paths

On Google Maps and CAD plans

  • Static swept paths and dynamic driving maneuver videos
  • Plan transports on Google Maps aerials or CAD drawings
  • Check swept paths on the tablet - directly at the transport route
  • Supported by big vehicle manufacturers
  • Video: Quick overview of HeavySim

CAD Import

Import your CAD plans directly to HeavyGoods. Display the associated Google Maps aerial image in the background if required.

Cargo Catalog

Whether bulldozer, crawler excavator, wheel loader, windmill blade or transformer - with the HeavyGoods cargo catalog, transports can be planned quickly and easily.

Dimension lines and labels

Add colored dimension lines, labels and arrows. For example, you can measure drive-through widths or mark parking prohibitions and necessary expansion measures for the route survey.

Automatic swept paths

HeavyGoods finds a way through the bottleneck - if necessary with maneuvering and turning maneuvers. Automatically - thanks to intelligent Fraunhofer technology!
Tip: If desired, you can also specify a guideline yourself!

Guideline simulation

With the guideline function, you specify the route of the tractor precisely and immediately see the finished towing curve.
Tip: If desired, you can also use the intelligent automation, which allows the vehicle to find the destination itself - even without a guideline.

Print reports

HeavyGoods automatically generates print reports with swept path images and measurements of the vehicles, including wheelbases, overhangs, coupling dimensions and overall length. This simplifies transport approvals and can help as proof of transport planning to clients.

HeavyGoods provides security and saves time when planning transports. It is one of my essential tools when it comes to heavy haulage transports.

I've never seen such a powerful transport simulation software. HeavyGoods works like a miracle.

CAD Export

Our automatic test reports and dynamic swept path videos are not enough for you?
Export the swept paths to your CAD planning software and use them in your own CAD layouts.

Step 1: Define start and target position
Step 2: Automatically found turning maneuver
Step 3: Export swept path to CAD - or share as interactive video

Your own digital vehicle fleet

Catalog with standard vehicles

  • Extensive vehicle catalog with tractors, semitrailers, trailers, turntable trailers, lowbed trailers, self-propelled trailers / SPMT, jeep dollies, followers, platform trailers...
  • Standard vehicle catalog with design vehicles according to German FGSV as well as guideline RBSV 2020

Add vehicles yourself

  • Free input of own vehicles - tractor, trailer, semi-trailer (flatbed, lowbed), self-propelled vehicle...
  • Live visualization of the new vehicle - in side view and top view
  • Supports vehicles with width and length telescoping, multiple bogies, bridges and up to 40 axles

Manufacturer service

  • Manufacturers of large and heavy transport vehicles (e.g. Doll, Goldhofer, Meusburger) offer HeavyGoods vehicle data sets as a digital service to their customers.
  • Request your vehicle directly from HeavyGoods. The manufacturer transfers the digital vehicle record tailored to your requirements directly into your HeavyGoods fleet.

For large and small transports

Numerous combinations

  • Swept paths for single vehicles (trucks, self-propelled vehicles)
  • Swept paths for simple combinations (semitrailers, trailers)
  • Swept paths for complex long combinations (self-propelled, dolly and trailing combinations, if required with turntables, telescoping and manual steering system)

Example: Transport bulldozer

  • Figure: Short combination with tractor and semitrailer
  • Cargo: Bulldozer from HeavyGoods catalog of construction equipment
  • The combination is automatically dimensioned by HeavyGoods and displayed in side view and top view

Example: Transport wind turbine

  • Figure: Vehicle combination of tractor unit, semitrailer dolly and follower with turntable
  • Cargo: Rotor blade (Siemens Gamesa) with tower adapter and blade mount
  • Swept path: A cornering maneuver with this follower combination is shown. The simulation can also be played as a video in HeavyGoods.

Real-life examples from customers

HeavyGoods' swept path simulations have been field-proven for years. Below are some examples from our customers.

Switzerland: Quickly and cost-effective

For this job, our customer Toggenburger used the HeavySim software to simulate the transport of a 35-meter steel bridge across Switzerland.Simulation and practice showed consistently: The costly and time-consuming removal of traffic signs and traffic lights could be avoided.

Argentina: 15,000 kilometers saved

Our customer "Transportes Crexell SA" from Argentina had an order to transport an overseas shipment of 51 rotor blades. Route planning with HeavySim showed that the shipment could be dispatched from a more conveniently located port. This saved 15,000 heavy transport kilometers.

Germany: Safely to the Christmas market

Our customer KVS from Germany had the order to transport a 22 meter high Christmas tree to the famous Striezelmarkt Dresden. The transport to the historic center of Dresden - under the eyes of many spectators - was accompanied by the HeavyGoods team and went smoothly.

Austria: By ship, crane and road

To double its production, an internationally active starch producer commissioned our customer Felbermayr: The task was to transport two 136-ton, 30-meter-long containers that landed in Austria from Bulgaria by ship via the Danube. Two truck-mounted cranes lifted the load onto a 17-axle vehicle combination. From there it went through a narrow industrial area. Thanks to advance planning with HeavySim only minimal clearing of obstacles was required.

Switzerland: Through the ancient Aare Gorge

The Aare Gorge was formed over thousands of years by the Aare Glacier. Today it is crossed by a road, whose narrow bends are challenging for large-volume transports. "Hämmerle Spezialtransporte GmbH" simulated with HeavySim in advance how their transport can pass the hairpin curves.
