How we design and manufacture our Adelaide trailers

At Basic Trailers, we pride ourselves on being one of the most innovative and responsive trailer builders in Adelaide.

As well as our wide selection of box trailers, car trailers, tipper trailer, mower trailers and more, we also design and manufacture custom trailers to our clients’ precise specifications.

The keys to quality trailer design

One of the reasons for our success is that we are able to respond to the needs of our customers, and can build a new custom trailer to meet the specific requirements of their business.

We are able to have this sort of flexibility because we use SolidWorks CAD (computer aided design) simulation software to design our Adelaide trailers.

SolidWorks CAD software sets the standard when it comes to engineering design, and is a valuable tool in the creation of our entire range of Australian made trailers.

It enables us to translate our ideas and concepts into very accurate 2D and 3D designs that can be rotated 360° to give a complete, in the round view, and which also feature inbuilt motion and stress analysis tools. In this way, we can experiment with what is and what isn’t possible, but at the same time always be sure that our trailer designs can be successfully and safely transformed into reality.

CAD simulation software also helps us to understand what materials and processes will be required during the building of our trailers, and to be sure that our unique trailer designs meet Australian Design Rules (ADR) and other relevant Australian Standards with regard to manufacturing and safety.

Using CNC machinery to manufacture our Adelaide trailers

Basic Trailers uses CAD simulation software in conjunction with CNC machinery (computer-numerical control). These highly effective, cutting-edge tools combine in such a way that we are able to push the boundaries when we design a new trailer, as well as build custom trailers to meet the specific needs of our clients.

We have used CNC machinery in parts of our manufacturing process to replace operator-controlled equipment, as this helps us to ensure that the end product is always a high quality trailer that we are proud to offer for sale. It also helps us to increase overall operating efficiency and reduce costs, so that we can offer our customers the best quality trailers that also provide the best value for money.

Utilising this high end machinery when building our Australian made trailers also enables us to be more innovative and creative, and to take our full range of trailers in new directions.
