ZF offers the axle up to a complete system including air springs, dampers, and radius rods. The wheel heads of the AVN 132 equipped with low-maintenance hub units (compact bearings) also reduce the time to replace brake disks. Altogether, the axle system weight is about 800 kilograms.
The lowered, weightoptimized axle housing creates additional space for a step-free center aisle.
The non-driven portal axle is designed as an intermediate or tag axle for articulated buses and is suitable for various standard driveline concepts.
Wear part compatibility with AV components constitutes a major advantage for OEMs and operators in terms of servicing and cost-effectiveness.
