Tractive Suspension manufacture regular dampers along with their active ride specifications. The high quality and specification of these dampers make them a great damper for someone looking for a high-end offering. The engineering employed by Tractive is superb.
This damper has one adjuster which controls compression and rebound. We can offer linear or digressive pistons to suit each customers requirements. The dampers are 46mm ensuring a high volume of oil to control temperatures.
Pictures are of the 3 way Active dampers. The 1 way damper looks identical other than an adjuster where the wire leaves the end eye and has no canister.
Tractive Suspension started 1st of June 2010 after WP Suspension moved from the Netherlands to Austria. The ex-WP core development team used this opportunity to start Tractive Suspension. Immediately the staff realised that the future in suspension is in electronically adjustable suspensions, not in marginally optimizing already fine-tuned suspension.
Tractive develops technologies with electronic control of damping and ride height. The millisecond fast, patented damping adjustment valve (DDA Dynamic Damping Adjustment), which allows for active body control, is one of the many existing examples. Based on this electronic know-how, the Tractive R&D department started doing prototyping & development work for OEM customers like BMW.
Tractive has in one hand everything that is needed for electronic suspension prototypes: experienced staff, shock absorber components, control units, sensor, actuators and algorithms.
The combination of technology know-how and our small till medium size scale production makes Tractive an attractive proposition for development projects. When a vehicle manufacturer is looking for ways to modernise or “electrify” his suspension, he will find Tractive as an independent consulting partner or Proof-Of-Concept supplier. Tractive works on projects from concept phase till release for production, including supplier selection, pre-production series, engineering and ride-work.
