Investment Casting of Cement Truck Axle End for the Heavy Equipment Industry

A client from the heavy equipment industry contracted Bral Corporation to cast a series of steel cement truck axle ends. Known for providing top-notch casting operations, we employed our advanced lost wax investment casting process to produce each part. Based off a customer supplied print, each axle end was cast from ASTM compliant steel material to measure 14 inches long, 12 inches wide, and 8 inches high. Each kingpin also weighed 35 pounds.

After the axle ends were properly cast, we performed a series of magnetic particle inspections and radiography testing to ensure that all parts were of the highest quality construction. With the ability to manufacture parts that fulfilled our client's precise product specifications, we now produce 5,000 cement truck axle ends each year for the heavy truck industry.
