Function and criticality

These components are intended for the drive transmission between shafts that are 90 degrees apart (e.g. on the input side of the differential case). They are very critical items since their breaking causes the locking of the vehicle they are mounted on and they also represent an important safety factor concerning the vehicle itself.


Major producers like Caterpillar and Case New Holland.


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.
