Compared with normal suspension systems, the ‘Twin Axle II’ independent wheel suspension guarantees the lowest loading height and at the same time a large axle stroke as well as a maximum steering angle of 57°.
Twin Axle II development & test
Faymonville subjected its ‘Twin Axle II’ system to an intensive development process. The conception was completed by a complex test run program in which over 50,000 kilometres were clocked up with a maximum load.
Advantages of the Twin Axle II independent wheel suspension
The ‘Twin Axle II’ has several specific advantages that are of particular use with semi low loaders such as the MultiMAX or low bed semi-trailers such as the MegaMAX:
- Minimal loading height (lowerable to 780 mm)
- Large axle stroke (-70 mm / +245 mm)
- Maximum steering angle 57°
- Increased payload
- Optimised maintenance costs
- Higher profitability
- Optimum km/cost ratio
- Simple wheel change
- Spray galvanising
- Aspöck Nordic connectors
Last but not least, the ‘Twin Axle II’ enables higher axle loads, especially on the German market, where two tonnes more can now be loaded per axle line.
Lighter and also more robust and flexurally rigid central beams can be used thanks to the individual wheel suspension and doing without a continuous axle body.
Faymonville is a full-range supplier - in every respect. And it’s no different with the axle systems of the various types of semi-trailer. The ‘Twin Axle II’ system - i.e. the independent wheel suspension - is a further module in the overall range. From the rigid axle and the friction-steered axle to the hydraulically knuckle-steering axle and the selfsame ‘Twin Axle II’ to the light or heavy pendle axle, Faymonville’s product range includes every axle system.
