BPW initiates series production of air suspension ECO Air COMPACT HD

Press Release   •   May 09, 2017 15:08 CEST

The running gear ECO Air COMPACT HD, now available from BPW, reliably withstands the greater stresses that arise in standard off-road operations
  • Designed for demanding nine-tonne applications
  • Ideal solution for tippers and moving floor trailers
  • HD shock absorbers as standard for vehicles with occasional off-road duties


Wiehl, 09.05.2017 --- BPW is now supplying its air suspension ECO Air COMPACT HD (EAC HD). Featuring the familiar two-part cast trailing arms, this modular air suspension has been further improved for the challenges encountered by nine-tonne axles with drum or disc brakes, and to withstand the greater stresses that arise in standard off-road operations.

For the heavy-duty version, BPW has systematically enhanced the characteristics of its proven air suspension ECO Air COMPACT. Innovative laser machining has optimised the geometry of the contact surfaces and the metallurgical properties of the interface between the axle beam, cast trailing arm and air bag beam. These additional manufacturing processes have made the mounting even more robust. As a consequence, the proven EAC air suspension is now suitable for operating environments that present tougher challenges. EAC HD is an ideal solution for transport companies that operate both on-road and off-road. By installing an HD shock absorber as standard, BPW has created an air suspension system that is especially suitable for tippers.

The reliability of the new air suspension axle system for on-road and off-road operations is underpinned by BPW's 5+3-year ECO Plus Warranty with unlimited mileage, which applies to all ECO Air COMPACT HD purchases. The shock absorber, air bag and brake cylinder are covered by a 3-year warranty.
