Alcoa Wheel and Transportation Products Inc. Key Developments

Alcoa Wheel and Transportation Products Introduces Forged Aluminum Wheel

Alcoa Wheel and Transportation Products has introduced a forged aluminum wheel that it calls the world's lightest wheel for heavy-duty trucks. The Ultra One wheel is just over half the weight of an equivalent-sized steel wheel. Replacing steel wheels with aluminum ones can help a big rig shed several hundred pounds, which has multiple benefits. Aside from lowering fuel consumption (which lowers emissions), the lighter wheels help offset the weight a truck gains from the pollution control equipment it must carry to satisfy federal emission standards. The reduced weight can also make it possible for trucks to carry more (or heavier) goods. To make the new wheels lighter and stronger, technicians at the Alcoa Technical Center invented the MagnaForce wheel alloy.
