Link Showcases Cabmate and Air Link at IAA Show
Link Manufacturing, Ltd. showcased its line of cab suspensions and heavy-duty truck suspensions to a global audience at the 66th IAA Commercial Vehicles show, held in Hanover, Germany, from September 22 to 29. Exhibiting in Hall 13, Stand C13, Link displayed a variety of its leading suspension and chassis products for heavy duty and commercial vehicles, including:
- Cabmate® is the leading cab air suspension system for Class 7 and 8 trucks. It replaces the solid rear cab mounts with a cushion of air using air springs, shock absorbers, air leveling valves and strategically designed brackets for controlling cab movement. Its patented design reduces road shock and backslap, vibrations, and back stress for drivers while also improving the cab environment to enhance driver alertness and safety. The air ride produces a quiet, smooth ride and helps control cab maintenance costs. Cabmate is optimal for terminal tractors, extended length sleepers, agricultural sprayers, fire trucks and military applications.
- The Air Link® Tandem Drive Chassis Suspension is a unique combination of air spring and walking beam technology that is designed to ensure maximum traction and load equalization. It delivers everything needed in a heavy-duty vocational suspension — high roll stability, low maintenance and a smooth ride. Available in capacities ranging from 46,000 to 84,000 lbs., it’s ideally suited for commercial vehicles in the fire, heavy-haul, refuse, redi-mix, military and logging industries, as well as crane operations.
