Cities that are more respectful with the environment thanks to Dura-Bright® EVO rims
In the cities that are most concerned about environmentally friendly transport, the fleets of diesel vehicles are being replaced by more sustainable alternatives. The weight saving in the vehicle is part of this optimization process.
Saving weight with the wheels of Alcoa® Wheels means being able to transport an additional passenger or a suitcase of more. it helps to improve the image of the vehicle and reduce maintenance efforts. These tires are cost effective and guarantee a longer service life.
In many European countries, this segment amounts to more than 80%. The transport of liquids in tanks is one of the segments most sensitive to weight and, in some cases, the return on investment can be achieved in less than a year.
Thanks to our forging process, Alcoa® Wheels are extremely resistant to impacts, which, in the world of dangerous goods transport, provides a valuable additional safety benefit.
Transporting cereals, vegetables and other bulk products in a truck with Alcoa® Wheels means an increase in the payload of 250 to 300 kg.
Taking into account the weight restrictions imposed by the DGT, saving 300 kg using Alcoa® Wheels can result in an additional pallet on the truck.
In sectors such as petrochemicals, steel, construction, the food industry, where the technical specifications are very strict, the choice of Alcoa® Wheels makes sense.
A dump truck in a construction makes several trips a day. With Alcoa® Wheels this can result in up to 1.5 tons of additional material being transported.
Our wheels are used in mining and forestry, under very harsh conditions.
Weight saving is not the most important thing. The resistance of the wheel is the determining factor.
In port areas where chassis are used to carry ship containers, they are very sensitive to weight, so the use of Alcoa forged aluminum wheels is very widespread due to the weight saving combined with the resistance of the rims. short-term investment for the fleet.
The transport of heavy machinery, military vehicles or large pieces by road, as well as the transport of vehicles in car carriers require extraordinary strength of resistance to weight or overheating due to the friction of the braking system.
The resistance and heat dissipation capacity of forged aluminum make Alcoa® Wheels the perfect ally for the transport of heavy goods. In this case the weight saving is not the most important thing, but the capacity of endurance of the Alcoa® Wheels.
