Timoney’s Independent Suspension Combo
Timoney is launching its new Independent Suspension Combo at IDEX 2019.
Designed to offer the best of all worlds, the system is a fusion of Timoney’s renowned and widely-adopted ndependent suspension (IS) and rugged, volume-produced drive systems, all developed for the harshest regimes with a unique supply model that offers maximum mobility at lowest cost.
The system addresses 4×4, 6×6 and 8×8 wheeled vehicle programmes, with several axle ratings up to 16,000kg, depending on activity and operational requirement. The concept involves separate qualified supply channels for the suspension system and primary drive solutions, which can be procured in component form as opposed to fully-assembled drive axles. As well as system cost benefits, the solution also provides significant advantages for shipping and logistics. Timoney will roll out the Combo approach for a range of other axle ratings in the future.
“Our aim is to take our Independent Suspension technology to as broad a customer base as possible through this unique supply model,” commented Timoney CEO, Shane O’Neill. “By adapting our best-in-class IS solutions to proven, rugged and reliable drive aggregates, that are produced in volume for tangential markets such as the construction and crane industries, we are able to offer our customers exceptional performance, reliability and safety at a highly competitive price point. In addition, we aim to continue Timoney’s tradition of encouraging independence and local economic development by offering our customers options for local assembly and technology transfer.”
Timoney’s unique solution is underpinned by its heritage as the originators of heavy IS for special vehicles, with over 50 years’ experience in the field. The offering can also be integrated with Timoney’s range of product enhancements and accompanying systems such as steering solutions, transfer cases and controllable suspension struts and is backed up by Timoney’s array of expert services, including assembly training, integration engineering, chassis design and vehicle engineering consultancy.
