  • WIDEST RANGE OF BENEFITS OF ANY CHASSIS

    INCORPORATING THE AMC CHASSIS INTO THE DESIGN OF YOUR NEXT VEHICLE PROVIDES A RANGE OF BENEFITS FOR YOU AS THE MANUFACTURER, AND ALSO A NUMBER OF ADVANTAGES FOR END CLIENTS OR CONSUMERS.

    For years, AL-KO have been considered as the ultimate marque of quality and performance within many industries. This is because of the range of benefits AMC provides over standard chassis, the quality of engineering and the flexibility of the product.

    Whatever the vehicle or application, these benefits enable AMC to be incorporated seamlessly into your next commercial design. An AMC performance chassis therefore provides you with the foundation on which to design and build commercial vehicles with even greater levels of performance, quality and safety.

    FLEXIBLE, LONGER WHEEL BASE OPTIONSAMC Chassis ensure a more spacious vehicle by providing

    longer wheelbase options and optimally matched overhangs. Multiple options are provided to vehicle

    manufacturers, to ensure you can make the right choice to suit your industry needs.

    CORROSION PROTECTIONAL-KO AMC Chassis have galvanised chassis members. The welded chassis flange connection is wax injected to ensure longevity.

    LARGER VEHICLE MASSThe AL-KO AMC Chassis enables a total of 12 wheelbase variations and 3 different track widths. This ensures sufficient space for your specified body.

    SLEEK, LOW LINE FRAMEUp to 220mm lower than the original frame, AMC enables manufacturers to create more spacious and flexible single and tandem axle vehicles. Additional storage areas can be

    designed into the space - and cables, pipes and water tanks can also be concealed neatly within.

    WIDE GAUGE CHASSISThe wide gauge chassis and the resulting wider spring

    track provides additional performance optimisation and ensures optimum driving safety and comfort.

    INCREASED PAYLOADA gross vehicle weight of 3,850 or 4,500 kg ensures higher achievable payloads. The proven AL-KO lightweight chassis design saves additional weight in comparison with the original vehicle chassis.

    AL-KO TRAILING LINK AXLE WITH TORSION BAR SUSPENSION AL-KO TORSION BAR SUSPENSION The well positioned torsion bar suspension axle provides balanced weight distribution and improves the drive axle traction. TRAILING LINK AXLE Together with independent suspension, the AL-KO trailing link axle with torsion bar suspension provides superior comfort and safety:

    - Improved driving comfort, due to lower unsprung masses. - No unpleasant resonances or body structure vibration ensures passenger comfort whilst travelling. - Greater drive axle traction. - First class wheel grip optimises braking efficiency.- Practically no noise development due to the special design of the AL-KO AMC rear axle. - Optional Air Suspension units available.
