ECO Air is BPW’s latest development in running gear technology. It has evolved from the company’s proven ECO Air COMPACT HD (EAC HD) suspension introduced into the European market in 2012. Available for drum and disc brakes and suitable for both on and limited off road operation, ECO Air also provides a substantial weight saving over its predecessor. When combined with the new TS2 ECO disc brake, it offers a weight reduction of up to 27 kilograms on a tri-axle suspension.

A particular feature of ECO Air is the employment of BPW’s patented, high-tech laser production process, that for the first time combines its typical clamped modular air suspension mounting with round axle beams. This three-dimensional laser profile, etched on the bottom of the casting interface, ensures a positive location with less clamping force.

Like its predecessor EAC HD, ECO Air is of modular architecture, with standardised components, making it possible to purchase the running gear components separately. This is of particular benefit to operators when it comes to repairs as only the damaged / worn component needs to be changed.

From the moment it is ordered, ECO Air, as with all future BPW running gears, carries a unique ‘digital DNA’ that stays with the running gear throughout its entire life. This not only includes the relevant production data, but also all data relevant to servicing, such as spare parts lists or service manuals which can be called up using the QR code on the axle.

ECO Air will be available in the UK from May 2019 onwards.
