Just for comfort? Airbag suspension benefits more than this


Many people only know that the airbag suspension is good for shock absorption and the vehicle is more comfortable. Today I want to tell you that the advantages of airbag suspension can be more than comfortable. Here are some of the hidden advantages of airbag suspension. As the top semi trailers manufacturer in China, we also widely produce the container trailers with Air bag suspension. According to the analysis of TITAN VEHICLE, here I show you the advantages of the airbag suspension in the transportation.


Firstly: good shock absorption effect

The airbag suspension can provide a good shock absorption effect for the vehicle. This utilizes the compressibility of the air. The airbag suspension can achieve a "soft connection" compared to the steel plate suspension. The deformation of the airbag is faster and superior than that of the steel plate. The airbag suspension can provide good shock absorption for the vehicle.

The airbag vehicle has a good shock absorption effect, and is widely used in vehicles that transport some goods such as glass and precision instruments. In recent years, domestic truck drivers have increased the comfort requirements of vehicles. Many vehicles that transport ordinary cargo have begun to use airbag suspension, and the airbag suspension brings more than comfort to the owner.


Secondly: More fuel saving

It is said that the vehicle with the airbag suspension will be more fuel-efficient. It is estimated that many people will not understand why, but let me tell you about how the airbag suspension can save fuel. For example, when the vehicle is walking on a bumpy road, should it slow down slowly? At this time, if the vehicle is suspended by the airbag, it can pass the bumpy section without deceleration or a small deceleration.

After the vehicle decelerates, it needs to accelerate to the normal speed. This process needs to consume more fuel. The airbag suspension has good shock absorption capability and to allow the vehicle to pass quickly, and the impact of the bumpy road section on the speed of the vehicle is minimized. It will save fuel.


Thirdly: protect the chassis components

Thanks to the good damping effect of the airbag, the vibration from the road surface can be minimized, the damage to the chassis components due to vibration can be minimized, and the looseness of the screws on the chassis can be avoided. For the simplest example, the airbag suspension will greatly reduce the chances of the trailer being opened. Import trucks are very durable, in part because they use airbag suspension.


Fourth: Convenient hanging transport

The airbag-suspended tractor makes the sling transport faster, and the ECAS system can be used to quickly adjust the height of the airbag, and the quickest connection and detachment can effectively reduce the number of swaying the trailer legs. It is precisely because of the convenience of hanging transport, more and more logistics companies are now using airbag suspension.


Fifth: Facilitate loading and unloading of goods at different heights

Today's vehicles need to stop at the platform for loading and unloading goods. There will be gaps in the platform height of different goods yards, which may cause inconvenience to the forklift entering the vehicle for loading and unloading goods. If the vehicle is equipped with an airbag suspension, the height of the airbag can be adjusted so that the height of the vehicle's cargo box is consistent with the height of the platform to facilitate loading and unloading.


Sixth: Save tires

Because the airbag suspension is a "soft link", when the vehicle is driving on a road with poor road surface, the tire and the road surface are better fitted, and the tire is not in contact with the road surface as the leaf spring to accelerate the wear of the tire. Therefore, the airbag suspension can reduce the wear of the tire.
