The compact axle housing at the heart of the DCA series – an ideal basis for all your transport needs

One axle housing, a multitude of applications:
The compact axle housing is what gives the DCA series its name – DCA stands for Durable Compact Axle. Integration of all the axle functions allows a compact and, thanks to innovative design, extremely durable and lightweight axle housing.


The wheel end

Tried and tested a million times over, this robust design for 19.5“ or 22.5“ wheels offers optimal heat dissipation, ensuring extremely long brake-disc, brake-pad and bearing lifetimes.


The compact bearing

Maintenance-free thanks to the use of state-of-the-art compact-bearing technology
that has proven itself a hundred-thousand times over.


The tailend

The DCA series can be realised with standard, weight-optimised or application specific tailends, thereby covering all application areas.


The hanger bracket

With three retaining brackets each – in some cases also optionally available in stainless steel – the DCA series in combination with the appropriate air bellows supports makes possible all driving heights from 215 mm to 535 mm, from megatrailer to tipper.



Intelligent, multi-talented axle systems.

The complete modular axle system opens up endless application possibilities with minimal spare parts. For you the customer, this means fewer spare parts and, thanks to unsurpassed quality, lower lifecycle costs.
