E-SYS Electric Auxiliary Traction System

Through studies and research at the Hercílio Randon Institute, Suspensys was a pioneer in the creation of an electric auxiliary traction system with a focus on electromobility: the e-Sys.

With an innovative and sustainable concept, e-Sys was developed by Suspensys in a partnership with the Randon Technological Center. It acts as an auxiliary system for recovering energy generated during descending and braking movements for times when traction is needed, such as going uphill or passing other vehicles.


Depending on the application, loading condition, and the road traveled, fuel savings can reach up to 25%, providing less wear on components and contributing to less waste generation and gas emissions.


The Hybrid R line semi-trailers, equipped with the technology, were introduced to the market in 2019 by Randon, after two years of development that directly involved IHR. The Bulk Carrier and Refrigerator models were the first to go through a field test phase, monitoring the product's behavior in real use on roads in the South and Southeast of Brazil.

Reducing Fuel Consumption and Pollutant Emissions

Developed by Frasle Mobility, the Composs brand was recently launched at Automec 2023, one of the biggest events in the automotive sector in Latin America. Research into the development of this technology began in partnership with the Hercílio Randon Institute (IHR) and the Randon Technological Center (CTR) in 2018, now gaining the structure for industrial production.


Structural composite parts, the focus of Composs technology, are made from the combination of materials with different chemical attributes and different properties, resulting in parts with new materials and superior performance. They have proven to be an efficient alternative to replacing metallic components in the road market, considerably reducing the weight of vehicles, which results in lower fuel consumption and less polluting emissions.


Composs is also concerned with sustainability in its manufacturing process. Waste generation is practically zero, and surplus raw material is directed to the production of biosynthetic wood. Additionally, composite materials offer other advantages such as smart design, ease of assembly and corrosion resistance.


In summary, Composs developments provide superior mechanical performance to metal parts, and are lighter and use more efficient manufacturing when it comes to waste generation, enabling the production of lighter and more economical vehicles. Frasle Mobility and Composs remain committed to seeking new technologies and advanced solutions to meet market needs and reduce environmental impacts.”

Large-Scale Niobium Nanoparticles

Based on scientific studies carried out by IHR, a new method for obtaining niobium nanoparticles on a large scale was discovered, which is now available on the market through NIONE – a unit of Randoncorp and Frasle Mobility that operates in the development of nanostructured products and production of Niobium nanoparticles.


Research carried out by the Hercílio Randon Institute gave rise to a pre-mix for use in protective coatings. Made with Niobium nanoparticles, the addition of this material allows gains in corrosion resistance, color durability, and shine, in addition to allowing ultra-fast drying, improving the application process.


Tests carried out in the laboratory confirmed the exponential increase in resistance against the action of corrosive agents, in some cases showing gains of more than 400%. The use of the coating reduces energy demand and allows the application of thinner layers with increased useful life, which, when combined with a water-based formulation, contributes to a more sustainable process.


One of the products that uses this technology is the Fremax line of brake discs, on the market since 2022. The objective is to further deepen the application of nanostructured products, with emphasis on metallic and non-metallic materials, developing more sustainable businesses that value scientific and technological knowledge.


Randon Solar Photovoltaic Energy on the Road

Randon Solar is a patented energy control and management technology, unprecedented in Latin America, developed based on IHR research, by Randon in conjunction with the Randon Technological Center.


The unprecedented and exclusive technology converts energy from the sun's rays through high-efficiency, ultra-thin and weather-resistant flexible panels installed on the outside of the semi-trailers – both on the top and on the sides. The energy is used to power any hybrid refrigeration device (from the refrigeration line) available on the market.


The installed power with the complete system can reach up to 15 kW, with the possibility of generating up to 11,500 kW per year. Among the estimated benefits is a saving of up to 1,800 liters of diesel per year, in addition to a reduction of up to 6 tons per year of carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere. The product's autonomy is around 22 hours for refrigerated loads and 5 hours for frozen loads.


Randon Solar has an exclusive energy management algorithm, which does not require any operator intervention for the system to function. All data can be accessed through an application for mobile devices or through an interface installed on the product itself.

Randon Smart Embedded Intelligence for Fleet Control

Randon Smart is an onboard intelligence service that increases fleet control: it enables monitoring and enhances the management of semi-trailers, generating data in real time, with savings and security.


The development included studies carried out by the Hercílio Randon Institute and a partnership with the startup Delta Global, through RV (Randoncorp investment initiative in startups) This innovation is part of the New R line, launched by Randon.


Its controls and actions are what make it possible to track the use of road equipment.

The platform has telemetry and sensing systems that generate control and management data, combined with contracting preventive maintenance services.


It allows monitoring in real time with location sharing, mileage controls, an embedded scale, and georeferencing to mark areas of interest between loading and unloading points. Thus, by obtaining detailed reports, the fleet manager can optimize trip planning, taking advantage of the product's best performance.
