CULLMAN, Ala. — Webb Wheel Products has introduced a new lightweight ductile hub for TP trailer axles.
Significant design improvements have been incorporated into this new product to reduce weight while at the same time, improving fatigue strength. Laboratory testing has shown this hub will outperform other competitive products currently available in the heavy-duty industry and will save fleets approximately 72 lbs. per trailer over standard ductile hubs.
The lightweight TP 2243 is interchangeable with Webb’s current ductile and aluminum hubs for this trailer application. Production is scheduled to begin Sept. 1, 2004 at Webb’s Cullman Alabama manufacturing facility. Additional applications are currently being designed and tested and will be announced to the industry when available.
