For over 50 years the Ridewell Corporation has lead the industry in the design and manufacturing of heavy duty truck and trailer suspensions. We own over 70 patents for exclusive features, used by large manufacturers of trucks and trailers. Our designs provide low maintenance, high durability, and superior ride quality. Ridewell is known as the engineered suspension company. Our experienced design engineering department is highly adaptive, and uses the latest engineering tools. All of our computer aided designs undergo finite element stress analysis and fatigue life prediction. Durability testing of our designs is validated in Ridewell’s advanced test lab. Our field data acquisition capabilities allow us to simulate nearly any road environment with our multi-axis rig testers. Pneumatic components are also thoroughly tested for performance and durability.
Ridewell Suspension systems are custom crafted according to customer needs.We begin with high- strength, low-alloy steel. Laser cutting provides a precise, clean edge for the best possible fit and weld of components. Automated laser cutters and tables deliver the fastest possible work flow and computer controlled nesting maximizes material usage. The precise laser cutting is just the first step in our cellular lean manufacturing environment, where each highly skilled team member is responsible for an individual process. Coordinated motion of robots and fixtures optimizes weld angles, resulting in unsurpassed weld quality. Post-weld finish processes complete a weld connection that is the ultimate in strength and durability. Final suspension parts are meticulously inspected, then they’re painted electrostatically or by immersion, to ensure that paint reaches every possible crevice that could invite corrosion.
Suspensions can be integrated with our superior Ridewell branded axles. As a final step before shipment, Ridewell’s quality assurance department inspects every product.
