PRODUCTION AREASElectric upsetting/induction heating and forging
Earth moving equipment
FUNCTION AND CRITICALITYThese components are being used for the transmission drive (e.g. from the engine to the gear-box). 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.
MARKET / CUSTOMERSMajor producers like CNH Industrial, Linamar and Caterpillar.
COMMENTSThe electric-upsetting and forging process grants a limited stock and a continuous fiber flow.
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.
