Durability and Weight Reduction
The trucking industry is facing new regulations in terms of CO2 emissions. For internal combustion engines, one of the pillars for achieving better energy efficiency is in the weighting of vehicles. Particular emphasis is placed on chassis and axle parts.
For axles, which transmit the engine torque from the gearbox to the wheels, Setforge is able to produce high performance axle shafts by electrical upsetting without size limit, as well as bevel gears by cold or hot forging, followed by machining.
When manufacturing the chassis,a particular attention is paid to the choice of materials such as aluminum to reduce the weight of parts, especially this of the suspension arms. Our company Setforge Engineering is also able to help you improve the design of your parts during the upstream stage of forging operations in order to obtain the best possible weight / performance ratio while optimizing the material weight engaged and, consequently, the final cost.
