ContiTech moves to lightweight air spring systems 15 August 2013

ContiTech, has launched a new generation of air springs that pick up on the trend towards weight reduction on commercial vehicles.

"At the very least, they equal conventional air springs in quality and performance," states Diethelm Bauch, head of the commercial vehicle OEM segment at ContiTech Air Spring Systems.

Bauch says that ContiTech's lightweight technology dramatically reduces the weight of air spring systems, while also making them more corrosion-resistant and durable, due to the use of plastic components.

"The new generation of lightweight air springs marks a significant technological advance. It represents a sustainable increase in performance," asserts Bauch.

"Our replacement market customers also stand to benefit from our cooperation with leading OEMs," furthers Dirk Hoffmeister, head of the commercial vehicle replacement equipment segment at ContiTech Air Spring Systems.
