Mevotech has been issued a U.S. patent for a ball joint for automotive suspension. This new ball joint patent is the third patent to be granted overall to Mevotech by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office within the past two years.
The new patent protects Mevotech’s innovative approach to limiting and controlling the axial play of the ball joint assembly. An extension of the company’s previous TTX patent, the enhanced ball joint reduces the stress of the components, maintains proper internal alignment, improves performance and extends the lifecycle of the part, according to the company.
The company says this latest patent, combined with Mevotech’s existing TTX Terrain Tough ball joint patent, will create vast opportunities for new product category development in the future.
