To be better is by
definition to be different. Being an innovative company, we must have the
courage to be different and to try new ways of solving problems and to develop
our future business. We know that innovation is not an option but a
prerequisite for our and your growth and future success.
approach is not primarily based on what we can do and what trills the
engineering mind – we seek novel solutions that will make a significant
improvement for our present and future customers. Accordingly, we develop
strong relations with our key customers and we involve them early in the
projects. We think solutions more than products and strive to find new ways of
making it easier for our customers to achieve and meet their goals and
objectives. Our lightweight philosophy is not primarily about straightforward
replacement of metal parts into corresponding composite components. We fully
utilize the opportunities that composite technology offers to develop unique
solutions that hopefully can do more than the replaced metal parts.
Below, you can read
more about some custom design solutions we have come up with through our
partnerships. Hopefully it will inspire you to challenge us with your next
innovative and future solution.
GFRP-AXLEThe glass fibre
reinforced plastic ECO Vision axle was developed in cooperation with BPW
Bergische Achsen, one of Europe´s leading manufacturers of trailers for cars
and trucks, which also won the prestigious innovation award at the IAA show in
2012 in the component category.
The ECO Vision
innovation offers many advantages: The
weight reduction of about 80 kg per axle module, representing 240 kg in a
3-axle unit, allows the payload to be increased significantly, while fuel
consumption is reduced when transporting a partial load. The weight reduction
is also important for the "unsprung mass" of the axle, wheels and
suspension. Both comfort and driving safety are increased, at the same time as
reducing noise levels as well as wear and tear on the road surface and
The design of the
GFRP air suspension module combines mechanical advantages and material
resilience with significant weight reductions and obvious visual benefits. ECO
Vision is designed for axle loads up to 9t and disc brakes. The configuration
as well as the installation and operating specifications are in line with the
current specifications for conventional air suspension systems.
BUFFER TANKThe glas fibre
reinforced buffer tank, also known as a silencer, has been developed with
leading Truck OEM´s and safety system suppliers to replace its counterparts in
steel and aluminum.
The buffer tank comes
in various shapes and forms, from a volume as little as 0,1L and a diameter
from Ø58mm, all depending on your specific requirement and desired
functionality. The buffer tank is often positioned between the compressor and
its charge line and the air-tanks, which supplies the vehicle with compressed
air to the brake and air suspension system and other areas. The solution can be
designed to reduce air fluctuations from the compressor and subsequently
reaching desired levels of noise reduction or to add extra storage capacity in
case of potential vehicle system air leakags.
The buffer tank
offers numerous advantages; noise reduction, extra storage capacity,
corrosion-free and cost effective.
BATTERY TANK &To complement our
standard air tank program, we offer our services in design and assembly for
customized air tank solutions that perfectly fit your vehicles.
OTHER MOUNTING SOLUTIONS
The battery tank is a
solution where all required air tanks are bundled on a frame construction for a
swift and easy vehicle installation. We can have the solution pre-assemble
including air couplings and directly delivered to your assembly line. We can
also customize single assembly solutions which do not require separate mounting
brackets and straps but instead can be installed on the end caps to free up
MULTI-PURPOSE TANKIn close cooperation
with long term partners, we develop customized and intelligent air tank
solutions that provide additional supply chain savings for manufacturers and easy
handling for operators.
The multi-purpose tank
does not only provide you with several ports on one side for easy and
user-friendly installation of air couplings for operators. The future also
presents threadless ports, with integrated coupling units allowing a quick
push-in of connectors, which also have been design with an easy 360° degree
release function. In other words, the solution provides numerous advantages; it
saves time at assembly, frees up space and eliminates unnecessary parts through
AIR SUSPENSION COMPONENTS Our system partnership guarantees extensive engineering services and a steady introduction of innovative and custom design solutions to your air suspension system.
Receive the latest top plate together with your custom designed Air spring piston. The air bellow connection plate is made of composite material and has a fully integrated mounting bracket and a threadless coupling unit for an easy installation. Not only is the system 100% maintenance free, it eliminates unnecessary spare parts and save you assembly time.
