Half Axles

 

Vibration Dampening Technology

chart-1

Flexiride® axles provide the smoothest ride in the market. The solid rubber cartridge works in shear as opposed to compression providing more angular compliance and superior vibration dampening compared to cord type axle systems. No shock absorbers are required due to rubber’s natural vibration absorbing capabilities.

Although primarily used in trailer axles the Flexiride® rubber cartridge also works as a dampener in conveyor belt systems, mining equipment and other industrial applications.

Adjustable Arm Starting Angles

The splined joint connecting the spindle arm to the cartridge is exceptionally strong. Positioned at 6° increments, the splines provide a range of starting angles to fit a wide variety of applications and allowing trailer height adjustment. Unlike welded units, the Flexiride® spindle is easily replaced by removing the pinch bolt, nut and washer.
