BPW's aluminium hub achieves weight saving of 54 kilograms
BPW Bergische Achsen KG has initiated series production of a forged aluminium hub targeted at lightweight semitrailers, and tankers and silo vehicles in particular. The hub can reduce axle weight by 18 kilograms and therefore curtail the weight of a three-axle unit by 54 kilograms. Customers in Germany and Sweden are already harvesting the benefits of this new solution.
