Driven solid beam axles are preferably used as rear axles in pick-up trucks, vans, and other LCVs. Here, the robust design also takes over the chassis function in addition to transmitting the torque. Besides, control arms and springs take effect at the axle tubes. They link the axle with the vehicle body and thus ensure force transmission between the wheels and the vehicle body.
Low weight thanks to aluminum housing and welded crown gear
High efficiency thanks to low-friction bearing, optimized hypoid offset and reduced oil quantity
Low noise exitation thanks to optimized gearing
Wide range of ratios
Can be equipped with locking differential as an option
