The new line of lightweight air suspensions features a smooth ride, low cost of ownership and promotes a patented "weldless" axle connection that uses formed retention grooves on the axle.
"Not only have we been able to develop a non-integrated, lightweight design, but we have eliminated all suspension-to-axle welds," says Steve Miller, vice president of engineering at AXN. "The result is an easier installation for the OEM, plus easier and less expensive to service by the fleet, should an axle need to be replaced."
The launch plan includes initial availability of the MARS-23 in June, with releases of the 25K, 30K, and 20K versions to follow. A slider mounted tandem for vans and reefers will be available by the end of 2012.
