Bogie suspension

The bogie suspension is to reduce the common leaf spring front and rear brackets to a single bracket connected to the car body. Its load point is shared on the front and rear axles. Compared with ordinary leaf spring suspension, the bearing capacity of bogie suspension is bigger.

This suspension is less commonly used on ordinary semi-trailers, mainly on heavy vehicles. TITAN low bed trailer manufacturers use bogie suspension.

Mechanical suspension

The mechanical suspension is our common leaf spring. It is mainly composed of leaf spring, suspension support, connecting rod, U-bolt and other parts. The longitudinal force of the body falls directly on an axle. The biggest advantage of this suspension is that it is cheap, reliable, and easy to maintain.

The most obvious feature of an air suspension is its airbag-type air spring. The weight of the air spring itself is relatively light, the air medium friction in the airbag is small, there is almost no noise during operation, and its life is 2-3 times that of the leaf spring.

However, when using an air spring, a rod system capable of transmitting various forces and moments other than the vertical force must be provided, so the suspension structure is complicated; in addition, the air spring has strict requirements on sealing and its cost is also high.

At present, air suspension for used lowbed trailer for sale south Africa is mostly in high-end fields such as precision instrument transportation and hazardous chemical transportation.
