‘2-piece’ Forged Case Style Design
Never stop chasing better achievements, TRE 4x4 team is
Dedicated to the constant improvement and evolution of
our Air Locker product lines.
During the last few years, TRE’s Air Locker technical staffs
have been quietly moving from a ‘3-piece’ air locker case
design to the stronger forged ‘2-piece’ style, in addition
to packing some more innovations inside the TRE Air Locker.
Delivering a phenomenal 40% improvement in static torque
strength compared with the equivalent ‘3-piece’ design, the
‘2-piece’ style is now available across the entire TRE Air
Locker range. This means no new TRE Air Lockers use the old
three-piece technology anymore. Beside this, the stronger
‘2-piece’ style case is made from forged 8620 nickel
-chromium-molybdenum tool steel.
Besides the updated case design, forged side gear sets are
Now being used across the entire TRE Air Locker production
lines. TRE side gears are made from 4320 chromoly alloy steel,
which has high toughness and strength. These precision gears
have an increased load carrying capacity and fatigue strength.
Forged gears are typically found in the most demanding
applications such as heavy industrial, commercial, racing,
and agriculture transmissions. From a metallurgical
standpoint, there is no stronger way to produce a gear. This
is because the forging process produces a part whose internal
molecular grain flow closely conforms to the shape of each
individual tooth. This cannot be achieved with other
TRE Air Locker utilized the ‘2-piece’ forged case and the forged
alloy steel gears, means TRE air locker will works more time on
road without problem, it makes TRE can offer longer Warranty
period to all customers. From Dec 2014 moving forward, all
‘2-piece’ Air Lockers sold are now supported by a 5 year
warranty free from defects in materials and workmanship,
increasing from the previous 2 year coverage.
