|20130168940||Wheel Axle Suspension - A wheel axle suspension comprises an axle body, a flexible trailing arm extending crosswise to the axle body, an axle pad arranged between the axle body and the trailing arm, and a clamping assembly for tightening the axle body, the axle pad and the trailing arm together. The axle body is provided with an elongated indent in the region where it is clamped, which indent extends in a longitudinal direction of the axle body. The axle pad has an elongate protrusion that fits in the indent in the axle body. The axle pad furthermore has a rigid rear portion, which comprises a rear engagement zone engaging on the rear half of the axle body, and a front portion which comprises a front engagement zone engaging on the front half of the axle body. The axle pad comprises a flexible intermediate portion interconnecting the front and the rear portion.||07-04-2013|
|20130001913||TRAILING ARM MOUNTING BRACKET - A trailing arm mounting bracket for mounting a trailing arm to a chassis or slider assembly of a vehicle, preferably a commercial vehicle, for example a lorry or a lorry trailer, includes two side plates each having a top end, a bottom end, and an opening in the bottom end for receiving a hinge pin, which side plates are positioned opposite each other with their opening at a mutual distance for receiving an end of the trailing arm in between their respective bottom ends, the side plates being mounted with their respective top ends to an in a mounted condition vertically oriented mounting plate, which mounting plate is arranged to connect the mounting bracket to the chassis or slider assembly, and where a centre of the shortest distance between the two openings in the side plates lies substantially in a plane defined by the body of the mounting plate.||01-03-2013|
|20120228847||WHEEL AXLE SUSPENSION HAVING CLAMP BODIES WITH A PROTRUSION FOR ATTACHING AN INDENTED TUBULAR AXLE TO TRAILING ARMS - A wheel axle suspension having on both sides of a vehicle a trailing arm which extends in the longitudinal direction of the vehicle, a thin walled tubular axle body, which has attachment regions where the axle body is attached to the trailing arms. Each trailing arm is hingedly connected at the front, viewed in the direction of travel of the vehicle, to a bearing bracket which is arranged on the vehicle chassis. The suspension also comprises a pneumatic spring operational between each of the trailing arms and the chassis, and clamp bodies for clamping the axle body at the attachment regions thereof so as to attach the axle body to the trailing arms, as well as tensioning elements for providing the clamp force for the clamp bodies.||09-13-2012|
|20110018217||HINGING ARRANGEMENT FOR A WHEEL AXLE SUSPENSION - A hinging arrangement for a wheel axle suspension of a vehicle, comprises an attachment eye fixed to a component to be hingedly attached to the vehicle, and a hinge pin, e.g. a hinge bolt, attached to a fixed vehicle component. The hinge pin is extending through the attachment eye, wherein the attachment eye has a bore for the hinge pin which comprises at least one tapering bore portion. The arrangement further comprises at least one resilient ring and a clamping member each provided with a central bore for the hinge pin, wherein, in the mounted state, the resilient ring is received at least partially within said tapering bore portion. The resilient ring is bearing with one side against the tapering surface of said tapering bore portion and said clamping member is forced against the other side of the resilient ring whereby the resilient ring is compressed between the clamping member and the tapering surface of the tapering bore portion.||01-27-2011|
