MEYLE HD stabilizer links - simply last longer
Our engineers are passionate about improving our MEYLE HD stabilizer links constantly seeking new ways of refining all components. To make installation and removal procedures easier for our customers, more and more MEYLE HD stabilizer links are designed with a wrench attachment at the ball pin. A distinguishing advantage, in particular over those original designswhich lack this value-adding feature. Owing to the larger ball head the ball surface on MEYLE HD stabilizer links has been increased be 50%. This way we have managed to significantly improve the part‘s load carrying capacity along with its service life. The blue clipon plastic socket adds additional strength to the MEYLE HD part.
The results of endurance tests performed at the Hamburg Helmut Schmidt University are an impressive proof of the quality of MEYLE HD stabilizer links: No evidence of joint play even after 1,000,000 test cycles!
MEYLE has made it its goal to constantly improve processes and procedures. For this reason, we will further optimise the coating processes of various products in the chassis and steering area from our factories.
In order to use fewer resources such as paint and water across the entire production process, thus making a contribution to environmental sustainability, we have now decided to switch to the cathodic dip painting (CDP) process. Our MEYLE stabilizer links, which were previously galvanised in silver, are the first product group to be converted to cathodic dip painting, which has the side effect of giving them a black colour whilst retaining the same item numbers. The first stabilizer links with new paint are expected to be delivered from Q2/2021 onwards. We also plan to use the new, more environmentally friendly coating for other parts in the chassis/steering category.
- All item numbers remain the same to minimise the effort in catalogue maintenance.
- From the change onwards, all products receive an additional black sticker on the packaging label – easily recognisable for intermediaries on the shelves.
- All products also receive a seal on the packaging with further information so that the colour change can be pointed out when the goods are unpacked and handed over to the customer.
- For the data distribution and the catalogues, we will point out in the illustration and with an additional text module that stabilizer links might either still be black or silver during the transition phase.
