KGI Standard Trailer Axles

Standard Trailer Axles

Integral One Piece Beam
Common track lengths use the integral one piece beam. This eliminates friction welded joints which prevents the possibility of spindle-tube joint failure due to a bad weld.

Machining of the spindle on the one piece beam allows for better concentricity between spindles and beam, promoting better spindle-beam brake alignment. This ensures a more consistent centering of the brake drum relative to friction welded beams. The end result is increased brake shoe life as the shoe wears more evenly. The improved centering also helps insure brake shoes make even contact with the drum, helping minimize pushrod stroke by minimizing undesirable flex in the brake system.

Key spindle diameters are cylindrically ground with continuous feedback for accurate sizing of the bearing and seal diameters.

The total indicated runout (T.I.R.) between the inner and outer bearings is virtually zero, and the opposing spindles on a one piece beam are more concentrically aligned to each other, relative to friction welded beams.
