SAF-HOLLAND Introduces CBX AeroBeam™ Fixed Frame Air Suspension System
The CBX AeroBeam Series is the industry’s lightest weight line of fixed frame air suspensions, and includes 23K, 25K, and 30K pound capacity models. The AeroBeam design features the optimal balance of strength and weight and stands up to the rigorous demands of on and on/off-highway tanker, bulk hauler, platform and specialty trailer applications.
“Our commitment is to design and develop products that better serve our fleet customers with leading technology,” said Bill Hicks, Trailer Suspension and Axle Product Manager for SAF-HOLLAND. “The lightweight CBX AeroBeam provides features that deliver measurable benefits for improved efficiency and superior performance for tank, platform and specialty trailer applications.”
Save an additional 62 pounds per axle by specifying an optional super lightweight disc brake wheel end package featuring the industry’s lightest weight wheel hub/rotor assembly and the lightweight SAF caliper.
The lightweight cast steel trailing arm beam boasts durability, while providing low overall system weight. The Integral shock absorber design improves ride performance, provides undercarriage clearance and protection from road debris.
To further improve suspension life, the pivot connection tension control bolt maintains proper clamp force eliminating the need to routinely re-torque the connection. The constant clamp force design prevents bushing and frame brackets from wearing out avoiding premature tire wear.
The patented SwingAlignTM system on the CBX AeroBeam makes maintaining axle adjustment quick and easy without disassembly or replacement parts. Its accurate alignment capabilities enable more precise tire tracking settings, resulting in reduced tire wear.
The CBX AeroBeam series is available with the optional P89 series air disc brakes for the ultimate in braking performance and ease of maintenance for a low total cost of ownership. The series includes the P89 Plus with its SAF INTEGRAL® rotor/hub and premium sealed bearings with a 7-year warranty, and the P89 with a five-year warranty. The CBX AeroBeam features a 5.75-inch diameter axle that is 19% more rigid than competitive axles, greatly reducing axle deflection to improve tire life.
Offered with frame bracket options for weld-on, weld-on with wing, bolt-on, stainless steel weld-on, and tapered top weld-on configurations to meet any trailer chassis design. The CBX23 AeroBeam is the lightest weight, most durable fixed frame air suspension available, and it’s backed with 7-year warranty.
