Wheel hub machining

A heavy weight to carry

Truck wheel hubs have to withstand even more than their counterparts on cars. High-strength steels and cast iron are the order of the day here, as their high tensile strength and durability mean they are ideal for use under heavy loads and strain. The wide selection of cutting materials and tools make the solutions from CERATIZIT clear favourites.
