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 substructure.
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.
