Front Knuckle Assemblies

front knuckle assemblies The front knuckle assembly consists of three major components: the cast Iron knuckle, a dust cover and a hub. This machine is manually loaded and unloaded.

Sensors indicate correct part installation and orientation. The operator loads and fastens three rivets using a manual rivet gun. The operator then loads the hub and activates a clamp that holds the hub in position while four bolts are tightened by a slide-mounted nut runner. When the pre-set torque is reached, the slide retracts automatically, the operator initiates the opening of the clamp, and the completed assembly is unloaded.
