High Bar Brands is making changes to its Premier Manufacturing Co. product lines, debuting new couplings.
The Silver Series, which includes the 1400 and 1400H models, features couplings that are harder than their predecessors, correlating to a reduction in wear.
“Topology optimization, finite element analysis, and casting flow and solidification analysis were used to design these couplings,” said Zach McCurter, HBB engineering manager. “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,” said Christopher ‘CT’ Thorpe, HBB president/CEO.
HBB said the Silver Series couplings can operate with strike-resistant latching.
“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 1.
