Shiloh Industries develops aluminium cast rear solid beam axle housing

Shiloh Industries of Plymouth, Michigan, has reduced the weight of a solid rear beam axle housing by 11 kilograms. Shiloh engineers were able to reduce the weight of a traditional cast iron rear beam axle housing by over 40%, creating one of the lightest pickup truck solid beam axle housings in the industry. This innovative design also reduces secondary machining operations saving production time and cost, without compromising strength or performance.
