Commercial Vehicle Aluminum Casting Meets Heavy Truck Industry Standards

Because safety is such a concern in the trucking industry, heavy-duty truck manufacturers must utilize parts that stand up to road conditions while meeting stringent industry requirements. When it comes to complex castings for engines, chassis, transmissions and braking systems, manufacturers of heavy-haul semi-trucks and trailers depend on LeClaire Manufacturing for commercial vehicle aluminum castings.

THE RISE OF ALUMINUM IN COMMERCIAL TRUCK PARTS

We are a heavy-duty truck parts manufacturer committed to the best results for our customers, their customers and the end user — using our aluminum casting capabilities to achieve benefits in:

  • Lower cab, container, trailer and overall weights
  • Adherence to strict industry standards
  • Increased hauling capacity
  • Greater fuel efficiency

Aluminum is becoming increasingly common in heavy-duty truck parts as fuel efficiency standards become more stringent and shipping companies — independent of government regulations — are faced with the challenge of moving more inventory and providing more capacity, all at favorable costs. The lower vehicle weights that aluminum castings yield are readily equipped to facilitate both of these goals.

Throughout the vehicle, it’s easy to find any number of components that can be switched from iron or steel to an aluminum casting, including:

  • Lower cab, container, trailer and overall weights
  • Adherence to strict industry standards
  • Increased hauling capacity
  • Greater fuel efficiency

  • Running boards
  • Roof rails
  • Engine Mounting Brackets
  • Chassis Components
  • And many more

As online commerce moves more and more products from warehouses to customers, having to turn down shipping jobs due to lack of capacity and over weight restrictions is equivalent to leaving money on the table. Aluminum components can play a key role in lowering vehicle weight and enabling more orders to be placed and fulfilled with you or your end customers.
