MTH is pleased to announce the receipt of Patent Number US 9,731,551 B2 for its "Fabricated Drop Axle" design. This intellectual property represents a ground breaking advance in the technology of commercial vehicle drop axles.

The fabricated design solves multiple problems inherent in typical formed tube designs and improves upon features such as axle stiffness, and end to end alignment which may reduce tire wear. Reducing the distortion that occurs in tube forming reduces stresses while improving upon dimensional features reducing manufacturing cost.
