Heavy Truck

The heavy truck industry has been taking advantage of the benefits of Austempering for many years. The need to haul heavier loads at longer distances, and more time between maintenance has lead to the need of light weight, high performance parts. Innovative concepts have become a reality due to the versatility of Austempered materials.

Typical applications in this industry include:

Austempered Steel

  • Transmission Wave Plates
  • Transmission Gears
  • Output Shafts

Carbo-Austempered Steel

  • Output Shafts
  • Pump Shafts
  • Starter Clutch Shells
  • Drive Splines
  • Differential Pinions
  • Side Pinions


  • Diesel Engine Timing Gears
  • Hypoid Ring and Pinion Gears
  • Jack Stand Gears
  • Suspension Brackets
  • Gear Housings
  • Sprockets
  • CV Joints
  • Differential Housings
  • Wheel Hubs


  • Timing Gears
  • Cylinder Liners
