New ContiTech lightweight air spring reduces weight in commercial vehicles.
For use in trucks, ContiTech offers an air spring with an innovative plastic piston in a lightweight design, which further reduces the weight of the vehicle and features an integrated buffer support for the first time.
The lightweight air spring with integrated buffer support minimizes weight and increases ride quality.
Compared with using steel components, the weight of the vehicle can be reduced by 12 kilograms per drive axle with lightweight air springs.
ContiTech also offers new product solutions to meet the increasing requirements created by small installation spaces, maximum spring travel, and challenging axle angles.
Thanks to the special design, it is possible to combine a long bellow length with a small installation and compressed height and achieve distinct axle angles. In vehicles, this results in more loading space and maximum flexibility for loading and unloading operations on ramps.
