CULLMAN, ALABAMA --TSE Brakes, Inc. is introducing TSE-REX™ (Rapid EXchange
TSE partnered with Consolidated Chassis Management (CCM) in developing this product.
CCM currently has about 130,000 chassis under management at pools throughout the
country. “With so many chassis, maintenance is a key cost driver for us. We are continuously analyzing data to determine
root causes of our maintenance spend. We identified bent push rods as one of those root causes. TSE Brakes listened to
our concerns and worked with us to develop this new game changing design,” said Jon Poelma, Chief Operating Officer/
Senior Vice President, CCM.
“With the VCT, you can freely spin the ports during installation and then secure with one bolt. Not only does the feature save time with installation, but it also allows our customers to stock fewer models because the port locations are now variable instead of left hand or right hand,” remarked Jean Gregoire, Vice-President Sales & Marketing,TSE Brakes. “This also helps eliminate hose chaffing, which is a potential citation, as well as the additional cost savings when it helps eliminate the need to replace hoses because of chaffing,” added Martin Summers, General Manager - Maintenance Administration, CCM.
Our customers told us that at times air brake actuators are less efficient because they are not always properly sealed by the installer. The beauty of the innovative VCT design is that we factory seal the diaphragm, so the installer is no longer required to get the best possible seal,” Jean Gregoire continued.
