At the Brisbane Truck Show, TMC will unveil a completely new drum brake trailer axle as well as two new models of airbag suspension. According to managing director Brendan Dullard, “We believe it is time for TMC to improve its offering to the market by the introduction of these new product lines.

The new axle has two major improvements. We have increased the axle beam strength by around 35 percent using latest technology materials and we are fitting the ConMet steel hubs with the well proven “preset” bearing system inside. This means much longer service intervals, less down-time and hence lower life cycle cost. “The axle will also feature a new cam cover arrangement with grease points at both ends. The new axle can be fitted to any one of TMC’s extensive range of airbag or mechanical suspensions.

The new axle has undergone rigorous testing and will be available to all customers from 1st June onwards.” Brendan adds, “The two new models of airbag suspension have been under development for quite some time. They are pitched at the long-haul sector of the market, with a 10 tonne version called SL10 and a 12 tonne model called TL12. Both models will be available with either lay forward or vertical shock absorbers and both incorporate well-proven bushings as well as 14” (360mm) diameter air springs. The TL12 version is ideally suited to heavy duty and off highway applications and high centre of gravity loads.

“The new TMC offerings along with its full range of airbag suspensions and special purpose axles can be seen at Stand No.40 in the Great Hall Concourse.”
