SAF-Holland has announced significant engineering updates to its CBX series trailer suspension offering, along with increased application coverage. Key to it all, and responsible for lower weight, is the company’s new ‘Fusion Beam’ trailing-arm beam design. It’s now being integrated into the CBX lineup, including the CBX40, CBX23, CBX25 and the CBX25/30.
This design involves the fusion of a fabricated tailpiece to the back of the suspension’s cast-steel beam to create a component that can be configured to meet a wider range of dimension requirements and meet a wider range of application demands. The new beam technology is said to reduce trailing-arm beam weight without compromising structural integrity by combining two "proven" suspension technologies to produce one efficient, high-strength component. Fusion beams will be offered in a variety dimensions to meet current and future van and vocational applications.
Another weight-saving and performance-enhancing feature in the updated CBX series is the optimized SAF X-Series 5.75 in. round axle.
