Custom Forged Wheel Bearing Locknuts for the Off-Highway Industry

wheel Bearing Locknut for Off-Highway IndustryIndustrial Nut Corp. manufactures a variety of large diameter wheel bearing locknuts for off-highway applications. By design, most parts have features to help either lock the fastener in place or provide a means to assemble the part. Industrial Nut Corp. works with forging suppliers who have the capability to forge slots, thus eliminating certain costly machine operations. In addition, INC has added a state-of-the-art machining center to replace older milling equipment, increasing our efficiency and reducing the cost to our customers.

With these featured wheel bearing locknuts for off-highway applications, we focused not only on fastener design but also on manufacturing cell development.  We utilize near net shape forge dies, as well as CNC chuckers, and VMC's. Multiple outside diameter slots were forged instead of machined to save time and a VMC was used to produce a slot which could not be forged. In addition to providing our client with a quick turnaround time, our processes reduced costs and enabled precise bearing adjustments.

The final dimensions for the wheel bearing locknuts were 3.000" to 8.000" with a .002 maximum run out. Surface finish ranged from 60 to 80 micro (RMS), and all locknuts were manufactured from medium carbon and alloy steels, such as 1045, 1141, and 4130.
