SUCCESS STORIES

Offset Round Axle Adapter:

White Mule Company has been manufacturing industrial products since 1925.  White Mule Company is the leading manufacturer of saddles for piggyback style semi truck decking and hauling.  Over the years semi truck designs change. White Mule Company must design saddle adapters to fit various new truck designs.  The Offset Round Axle Adapter is one such design.  A major truck manufacturer came out with a new front axle design for some of their four wheel drive trucks.  Instead of the traditional I-beam style front axle, the new design had a round front axle with an offset front differential. White Mule Company's saddles were designed to fit the traditional I-beam style front axles.  White Mule Company needed to design an axle adapter that would allow the use of the traditional White Mule Company Saddles with the new axle design.  Using 3D CAD software White Mule Company designed an axle adapter to fit the profiles of the new axle design.  The CAD software increased design efficiency by streamlining the design, review, and redesign process.  A prototype was manufactured using the CAD drawing specs and was taken to the client for review and fitment analysis.  The 1st design iteration of the Offset Round Axle Adapter met the client's needs.  The CAD software allowed White Mule Company to design an adapter for the new truck axle in one design iteration minimizing design costs and expediting turnaround for the client.
