New component: wheel bolt

An integral element of Frauenthals´ growth strategy is new product development. The wheel bolt is one of the most recent examples, has been developed in our Polish plant in Toruń and is being produced already in series. Wheel bolts are threaded connections that connect the wheel to the truck. They are mounted directly on the truck, usually in combination with a brake drum or a disc brake. This new product and production technology enables Frauenthal Automotive as well to enter non-automotive markets like wind parks, agricultural equipment, rail vehicles or off-shore constructions where similar screw connections are needed.
