The new line of lightweight air suspensions has a patented “weldless” axle connection that uses formed retention grooves on the axle. The design eliminates all suspension-to-axle welds. The result is said to be an easier installation for the OEM, plus easier and less expensive service for the fleet.
VDL Weweler is a well established company and the partnership allows AXN to provide a full suspension line tailored for the North American market.
The launch plan includes availability of the MARS-23 now, with releases of 25,000-, 30,000-, and 20,000-lb versions to follow. A slider-mounted tandem for vans and reefers will be available by the end of 2012.
