SAF-Holland unveils CBXA AeroBeam fixed frame air suspension series

During a virtual press conference, SAF-Holland announced the introduction of its CBXA AeroBeam Series of fixed frame suspensions, a lineup of four lighter-weight, top-mount trailer air suspensions. The CBXA AeroBeam Series is a lightweight line of fixed frame air suspensions, and includes 23K, 25K, and 30K pound capacity models. The AeroBeam design features the optimal balance of strength and weight, and stands up to the rigorous demands of on and on/off-highway tanker, bulk hauler, platform, and specialty trailer applications.


“The lightweight CBXA AeroBeam provides features that deliver measurable benefits for improved efficiency and performance for tank, platform and specialty trailer applications,” said Bill Hicks, trailer suspension and axle product manager for SAF-Holland.

Fleets can save an additional 62 lbs. per axle by specifying an optional lightweight disc brake wheel-end package, featuring lighter-weight wheel hub/rotor assembly and the lightweight SAF caliper, the supplier noted. The lightweight cast steel trailing arm beam boasts durability, and the Integral shock absorber design improves ride performance, provides undercarriage clearance and protection from road debris.

To further improve suspension life, the pivot connection tension control bolt maintains proper clamp force, eliminating the need to routinely re-torque the connection. The constant clamp force design prevents bushing and frame brackets from wearing out, avoiding premature tire wear.

Hicks noted that the SwingAlign system on the CBXA AeroBeam makes maintaining axle adjustment quick and easy without disassembly or replacement parts. Its accurate alignment capabilities enable more precise tire tracking settings, resulting in reduced tire wear.

The CBXA AeroBeam series is available with the optional P89 Series air disc brakes. The series includes the P89 Plus with its SAF Integral rotor/hub and premium sealed bearings with a seven-year warranty, and the P89 with a five-year warranty.

Two of the frame bracket options.

The CBX AeroBeam features a 5.75-in. diameter axle that is 19% more rigid than competitive axles, which the company says greatly reduces axle deflection to improve tire life. It is offered with frame bracket options for weld-on, weld-on with wing, bolt-on, stainless steel weld-on, and tapered top weld-on configurations to meet any trailer chassis design.
