Premier Manufacturing introduces two new couplings

Premier Manufacturing's 1400 coupling

High Bar Brands' (HBB) brand Premier Manufacturing has debuted two new couplings, which the company says are stronger and more durable than ever before.

The Silver Series, which includes the 1400 and 1400H models, features couplings that are harder than their predecessors, correlating to a significant reduction in wear.

“Topology optimization, finite element analysis, and casting flow and solidification analysis were used to design these couplings,” says HBB Engineering Manager Zach McCurter. “This allows us to place material where it is needed and remove material from areas it is not necessary, which results in a reduction in weight and an increase in strength.”

The latch capacity for the Silver Series is 60,000 lb., making it an option for heavy-duty fleets. HBB says the Silver Series couplings are easy to operate with strike-resistant latching, and the 1400 and 1400H feature two of the most popular mounting pattens in the industry.

“We wanted to make sure this product line was versatile, so any company  whether they’re involved in light-duty, medium-duty, or heavy-duty work — could use these new couplings,” says Christopher Thorpe, president and CEO, HBB. “We’re extremely excited about this release, which we feel furthers our reputation for producing the best couplings in the business.”

The Silver Series line hit the market July 1 and the company says it has already sold out with thousands of units on backorder. Current backorder status is approximately 60 business days, so HBB suggests to customers to order now to meet any upcoming needs.
