NEW HUDSON, Mich., Oct. 17, 2016 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- The founders of Industrial Components Group, a company that offers a wide variety of high quality operating and control elements, including metal handwheels and more, are pleased to announce that they have recently developed the Aluminum 2 Spoke Chrome Plated Handwheel.

As a company spokesperson noted, these newly-produced handwheels were developed for a customer with a very specific need.
The client, Akron Bass, makes valves and other components for fire trucks and firefighting equipment.
"This is a very tough environment, and the wheels they had been using were rusting and corroding badly," the spokesperson noted, adding that members of the team from Industrial Components Group met with engineers from Akron Bass to figure out how to solve this issue.
"They asked if we could keep the same wheel, but have it chrome plated to 400 hour salt spray specifications. We created a new specialized tool, and developed a plating process so we could reach this specification."
As the spokesperson noted, Industrial Components Group is one of the only companies that produces this type of metal handwheel to these specifications, which includes being able to stand up to the harsh treatment fire truck wheels endure while still looking good.
"They wanted to keep the high end look of their equipment—these wheels go on trucks that cost $1 million plus—with long term performance," the spokesperson said.
The newly developed Aluminum 2 Spoke Chrome Plated and gravity cast aluminum handwheels are available in both 4-inch and 6-inch diameters. They are available with either a smooth operating 304SS/phenolic folding safety handle (PFRH) or a standard phenolic revolving handle (PRH). This new special order handwheel is designed for long term OEM applications.
People who would like more information about Industrial Components Group are welcome to call the company at any time.
"Our staff of highly trained customer service and technical support representatives can assist you with any questions you may have, and we enjoy partnering with our customers and sharing our philosophy of providing innovative, high quality products," the spokesperson said.
