SAF-Holland announces the expansion of its CBX Series air suspension/slider axle system offering for the North American trailer market with its new SAF CBX46 and CBX50.
The SAF CBX46 and CBX50 offer robust 5.75-inch-diameter axle technology along with increased capacity and cast steel suspensions.
SAF CBX46—Designed for greater efficiency and economy, the 46,000-pound-capacity of the SAF CBX46 is available in the US and Canadian markets. Unlike similar competitive suspensions, the CBX46 includes a substantial upgrade to the overall slider strength and rigidity, incorporating a thicker 80 KSI high-strength steel slider subframe material shared with the CBX69 Tri-Slider Series. The thicker side sill yields a 31% increase in overall structural rigidity over the CBX40 slider.
The CBX46 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 combination of these upgrades creates a true 46,000-lb-capacity rated system to handle the increased duty cycle and axle capacity demands for moderate- to heavy-duty van and reefer applications.
SAF CBX50—The 50,000-lb-capacity of the SAF CBX50 makes the air suspension slider axle system ideal for heavy-duty van and reefer applications, and is also approved for the Mexican market. The CBX50 shares the same increased structural improvements by using the 80 KSI yield slider subframe material as the CBX46. However, the CBX50 is further structurally enhanced with two additional crossmembers. The CBX50 is designed with the SAF CBX25 air suspension trailing arm, providing increased system strength.
The CBX46 and CBX50 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-inch offset wheels for application and maintenance flexibility, allowing fleets to choose the wheel end offset desired. The P89 can accommodate both industry-standard single wide-based wheels with up to 2-inch offsets and dual wheel configurations. This wider bearing configuration helps distribute the load between the bearings.
