PRODUCTION AREA

Electric upsetting - Mechanical machining - Heat-treatment

APPLICATION


Transport vehicles


Agricultural vehicles


Earth moving equipment

FUNCTION AND CRITICALITY

These components are being used for the transmission of the motion flow between two not aligned axes. They are very critical items since their breaking causes the locking of the vehicle they are mounted on and also represent an important safety factor concerning the vehicle itself.

MARKET/CUSTOMERS

Major producers like Walterscheid, Elbe, Dana Incorporated, Gewes and Texelis.

COMMENTS

The electric-upsetting process grants a limited stock and a continuous flow of fibers.
The advantage offered by Sapes is represented by the fact that we can supply a highly integrated production cycle which – starting from a raw bar – can provide a completely finished component ready to be assembled into the vehicle.
