SAF-Holland is making engineering upgrades to its CBX Series Suspension System for trailers with the introduction of its “Fusion Beam” technology to reduce suspension weight.

This new trailing arm beam design is currently being integrated into the CBX Series line-up of suspension systems including the CBX40, CBX23, CBX25 and the CBX25/30 units, the company noted. Another engineering feature also being integrated into the updated CBX Series is the optimized SAF X-Series 5 ¾-in. round axle.

SAF-Holland explained that “Fusion Beam” technology is 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 systems dimensions and trucking applications.

The “fusion” procedure also reduces trailing arm beam weight without compromising structural integrity by combining two proven suspension technologies to produce one efficient high-strength component, the company said.
