“Topology optimization, finite element analysis, and casting flow and solidification analysis were used to design these couplings,” HBB Engineering Manager Zach McCurter said. “This allows us to place material where it is needed and remove material from areas it is not necessary, which results in a reduction in weight and an increase in strength.”
The latch capacity for the Silver Series is 60,000 pounds, making it an option for heavy-duty fleets.
“We wanted to make sure this product line was versatile, so any company – whether they’re involved in light-duty, medium-duty, or heavy-duty work – could use these new couplings,” HBB President & CEO Christopher ‘CT’ Thorpe said.
HBB says the Silver Series couplings are easy to operate with strike-resistant latching, and the 1400 and 1400H feature two of the most popular mounting patterns in the industry.
“We’re extremely excited about this release, which we feel furthers our reputation for producing the best couplings in the business,” Thorpe said.
The Silver Series line hit the market July 1st and HBB says it has already sold out with thousands of units on backorder. Current backorder status is approximately 60 business days, so HBB suggests ordering now to meet any upcoming needs.
