Making a Smooth Ride: Manufacturing the Parts of the Suspension System Relies on Machine Tools of Great Power and Precision

December 21, 2015  

Imagine you are driving a heavy vehicle used in mining or construction.  It’s not an easy task; it’s often difficult, stressful and dangerous.   And, when your vehicle has poor wheel suspension, getting the job done can be almost impossible.  It’s hard to keep your truck on the road as you’re tossed about, hitting all the bumps, getting knocked off track.  You and the material you’re hauling are about to fall out.  That’s why it is vital for manufacturers of giant vehicles driven in tough conditions to assemble rugged wheel suspension systems that can withstand the punishment.
