|Kaller at IAV 2013 a global leader of gas hydraulic suspension for military vehicles.|
Kaller is a Swedish Company which design and manufacture gas hydraulic suspension products for heavy duty off-road vehicles for military use. Kaller sealing technology expertise gained from our long experience with industrial gas springs allows the military vehicles to expand their operational range from desert heat to North Pole cold.
The Kaller suspension system, which will be part of the Swedish Armed Forces' new wheeled combat vehicles, is being delivered to the Finnish Patria Group.
Better suspension means better comfort and personnel safety. Since gas springs drastically reduce vibration levels, the vehicle and the driver can perform better. This increased efficiency decreases wear on vehicle and driving surface. KALLER advanced suspension technology offers ride height control of the vehicle for air transportability and survivability.
Keller adjustable suspension provides additional survivability protection by reducing the damage from improvised explosives devices (IED). Our suspension systems also allow for pay-load compensation to keep the vehicle on the same ride height independent of pay-load which improves the handling of the vehicle.
In tough international competition we won the multimillion U.S. dollar suspension order for Patria. The suspension system, which will be part of the Swedish Armed Forces' new wheeled combat vehicles, is being delivered to the Finnish Patria Group. Patria's order was the first serial delivery of KALLER gas hydraulic suspension systems for commercial and military heavy duty off-road vehicles. In the next few years Patria will deliver 113 wheeled combat vehicles, with an option for an additional 113 systems to the Swedish Defence Materiel Administration (FMV).The vehicles must be in opration within the Swedish Armed Forces in 2014.
This order is the result of a technology development that began six years ago and is based on gas spring technology that has made Stromsholmen a world leader. Stromsholmen is global leader the design and manufacture of KALLER industrial gas springs with a clear focus on the automotive industry. The vehicle weight and operating environment required a rugged lightweight solution which KALLER gas hydraulic suspension products meet.
