1000mm long axles are proudly registered as Australian made and employed Australian workers.
Measure bare axles from tip to tip to eliminate mistakes with different hubs, drums and disc rotors.
Different brands vary as much as 20mm on one side. Therefore over the length of an axle, the real tip to tip distance varies 40mm.
Technically, a well-made axle has a smooth profile or surface. Smooth surfaces are achieved when a finishing tool is passed over the axle profile to finish the CNC machining process.
Imported axles can have a rough finishing surface. This type of surface results in high bearing wear.
Couplemate Trailer Parts sources bar steel from Bluescope in Newcastle and Port Kembla. You may also find it interesting to find the steel comes from Whyalla, South Australia.
Further, these same axles are sent to a local coating plant in Brisbane for Galvanising.
