SAF-Holland has expanded its CBX Series air suspension/slider axle system with two new models. The new CBX46 and CBX50 models offer 5.75 in. diameter axle technology and increased capacity.
The CBX46 is a 46,000 lb. capacity system incorporates a thicker 80 KSI high strength steel slider sub-frame material. The thicker side yields a 31% increase in overall structural rigidity the durable CBX40 slider, the company said.
The system also includes a new trailing arm shared with the SAF CBX23 air suspension axle system, providing increased strength and load capacity while minimizing overall weight.
The SAF CBX50 is a 50,000-lb. capacity model which is also approved for use in the Mexican market. The CBX50 shares the same increased structural improvements by utilizing the 80 KSI yield slider sub-frame material as the CBX46. However, it features two additional crossmembers to a robust and structurally rigid 50K slider.
Both suspension-slider axle systems are available with the optional SAF Integral air disc brake axle system with the P89 optional wheel end package. The P89 accommodates up to 2-in. offset wheels for application and maintenance flexibility, allowing fleets to choose the wheel end offset desired. And, the P89 can accommodate both industry-standard single wide-based wheels with up to 2-in. offsets and dual wheel configurations. This wider bearing configuration helps distribute the load between the bearings, SAF-Holland said.
Both systems also feature SwingAlign, which allows for easy and quick adjustments, and the QwikRelease pin pull for easy slider adjustments.
“The CBX46 and CBX50 are key suspension/slider axle system additions in our ever-growing portfolio as we continue to meet the needs of our customers,” said Steffen Schewerda, president of Trailer Suspension Systems Business Unit. “The expanded CBX Series provides customers with more suspension choices from SAF-HOLLAND with the same performance, efficiency, and reliability that they have come to depend upon.”
