The APEX system features an intuitive interface with an enhanced user experience, offering over 20 safety features aimed at alerting operators and preventing some of the most common and disastrous mistakes made many times by inattentive and inexperienced drivers.

APSCO LLC, a manufacturer of pneumatic and hydraulic products for the mobile equipment and transportation industries, has announced the release of four new product lines, its APEX, ARIS, ATAS and EDM Series, the culmination of years of development in engineering and design, while marking a game-changing moment for APSCO as it expands its footprint in multiple applications.

The new product launch is led by the innovative APEX system, a display and control system for dump trucks featuring an intuitive interface with an enhanced user experience, offering over 20 safety features aimed at alerting operators and preventing some of the most common and disastrous mistakes made many times by inattentive and inexperienced drivers.

The arrival of the APEX comes at a crossroads for much of the trucking industry, which continues to grapple with a number of challenges, not limited to driver shortages and safety concerns. APSCO is seeking to bridge the gap for fleet owners who are concerned about protecting their equipment as well as their operators, thus avoiding disastrous or even catastrophic events.

The ARIS-250 (which stands for "APSCO Reservoir Integrated System") is APSCO's new offering for the world of integrated reservoir systems, addressing the increasing demand in the medium-duty truck markets for a cost-effective, electric over hydraulic option, with the important advantage of filtration of contaminants, which ultimately lowers the cost of maintenance and extends the life of the hydraulic system, bringing APSCO's longstanding history of outstanding quality and trusted pneumatic products into a new era.

APSCO's DM (Direct Mount) air actuators for directional control valves are already an industry standard, and the new EDM Series is adding to this legacy with a solution for electric over air control. The newly launched EDM Series provides a more practical control solution compatible with APSCO's APG directional control valves. It is an alternative to complex proportional control while providing a clean and integrated solution.

The ATAS-210 is the company's new hydraulic manifold and control system for trailing axles. The hydraulic system, coupled with a trailing axle, redistributes the payload in order to accommodate bridge laws across the country. Designed and supported by APSCO's certified fluid power specialists, the ATAS-210 offers a robust, readily available, and reliable alternative to other trailing axle systems.

One of its greatest strengths is its ability to increase productivity and profitability by allowing the end user to have a higher payload. The system with the trailing axle provides an enormous upside potential for the future of the dump industry by increasing truckloads, cutting down on the amount of drivers and loads, saving in fuel costs and overhead.

"APSCO has long been a leader in manufacturing hydraulic and pneumatic products for the vocational truck industry," said Chris Wunsch, V.P. of sales, APSCO. "This is an exciting new chapter for our company and we are thrilled to be sharing these new product lines."

APSCO was founded in 1964 in Tulsa, Okla., this year celebrating 60 years as an industry leader providing products for the mobile equipment and transportation industries, offering a comprehensive line of combination hydraulic reservoir, filter and cooling systems.
