Trax Mechanical Systems used the recent show in Louisville to launch its line of Traxium trailer axles and landing gear, built in China but engineered by Americans and aimed at North American applications.

The axles are available in a full variety of specs, including standard and small-brake offerings, as well as heavy-duty applications and non-standard tracks. They come standard with extended service brakes and e-coated brake shoes.

The Traxium landing gear is available in the Pro50 model for 50K applications, adaptable for various shoe configurations, handles, and inside and outside mounts. Trax says it exceeds TTMA/AAR test standards, while still being among the lightest available. Standard features include specially formulated grease, forged steel gears, and extended-maintenance grease-containment systems. A 60K unit will be available this summer.

Led for the most part by former ArvinMeritor executives, Trax is a privately held American firm partnered with China’s Guandong Fuwa Heavy Industries. In fact Trax people run the manufacturing show in China — including product design and engineering — as well as marketing, sales, some assembly, and distribution in North America.

The Trax product line goes well beyond trailer axles and landing gear. More on this interesting new player in the next Product Watch newsletter on April 21.
