Axle Types

Rigid axles and hubs

Over recent years, the innovative ECO Plus hub system for drum and disc brakes has had a major effect on running gear technology. Development of this third-generation, world-leading, patented hub system, is ECO Plus 3, suitable for axle loads up to 12 tonne.

A BPW rigid axle combined with an ECO Plus hub system, remains highly ranked in today’s commercial vehicle market. This durable arrangement offers high load capacity, whilst being competitively lightweight.

 

DID YOU KNOW?

The design of the BPW hub system is the result of over 110 years engineering experience. Technology used today follows axle construction techniques originally introduced over 70 years ago.

The ECO Plus hub system is specifically designed to withstand tough challenges during both on-road and off-road transport operations. We have achieved this by focussing on key areas; the stub axle, bearing selection, sealing arrangements and bearing adjustment. The result being a robust, reliable system is designed for long service life.
