CARDONE Industries has announced plans to expand its drive axle assembly product line designed to deliver top-of-the-line solutions for many light to medium trucks, as well as cars that are susceptible to axle failures.
CARDONE’s innovation team has responded to customer feedback and identified common failure points in order to re-engineer front and rear drive axles that save technicians time and cut costs, according to the company.
“Typically, someone would need an expert to rebuild a full axle assembly piece by piece or they’d hunt for a suitable part in a junk yard. Our team designed these products to be end-to-end solutions,” said Joe Camacho, innovation product manager. “Our goal with any new product is to create a complete solution. Our front and rear drive axle assembly offering embodies that mission.”
Camacho added that full drive axle rebuilds can be costly, because they often take six to eight hours. CARDONE’s axle assemblies significantly reduce the cost and time required for a technician to install, the company says.
“These drive axle assemblies come ready to install and cut time down to about an hour and a half,” added Camacho. “We aimed to make the sourcing and installation of these drive axle assemblies simple and straight forward. We also offer brand-new U-bolt kits, complete with all nuts and washers needed to complete the job.”
CARDONE says it leveraged its industry-leading logistics services to make sending in core parts and the shipment of drive axle assemblies simple and easy. Technicians can order their axle assembly, then CARDONE will send the new part in a reusable crate that the technician can refill with their core part and ship back to CARDONE. CARDONE pays for the shipping and takes the value of the core off the total cost.
Each axle assembly is designed using only original equipment internal products. Once the engineering team completes a product, the axle assembly is 100-percent tested for vibration and excessive noise concerns in the gears and bearing.
