High Bar Brands (HBB) is debuting stronger, more durable couplings from its Premier Mfg product lines.
The Silver Series – which includes the 1400 and 1400H models – features couplings that are harder than their predecessors, correlating to a significant reduction in wear.
“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. The couplings are also easy to operate with strike-resistant latching, and the 1400 and 1400H feature two of the most popular mounting pattens in the industry.
“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.
The Silver Series line hit the market July 1. The company stated that the product now has thousands of units on backorder with a waiting period of approximately 60 business days.
