SAF-Holland says its SAF CBX40 air suspension system integrates key technologies from the former SAF and Holland organizations to provide an advanced solution for the North American van and reefer markets. According to the company, the system incorporates a high-strength slider box with QwikRelease Pin Pull to facilitate easy slider adjustments; SwingAlign, designed to provide fast, convenient axle alignment; and cast-beam trailing-arm construction for optimal strength and weight reduction.
In addition, the CBX40 features the company’s 53/4-inch diameter X Series axle, new drum brake configurations and optional Integral-Disc brake technology. SAF-Holland says its proprietary bi-metallic casting process mechanically combines the rotor and adapter-flange into a single rotor assembly designed to control the effects of heat; the rotor expands in a radial direction, under extreme braking conditions, to keep rotor surfaces flat and stable, which helps minimize the risk of premature rotor failure while extending brake pad and bearing life.
