Xtek has staked its place as a leading industrial wheel product innovator. Our history of solving tough problems began in the early 20th century with the development of a steel hardening method, which would ultimately become known as the Tool Steel Process (TSP). Since that first innovation, we have continued to refine and apply our design, metallurgical, and heat-treatment techniques in the development of wheel products for a wide range of industries.
Xtek delivers a variety of heavy-duty, industrial wheel products known to meet and often exceed original manufacturer specifications:
- Crane Wheels and Track Wheels – Contour case hardened crane and track wheels have a superior safety record throughout all heavy duty industrial applications
- Tyres and Rollers – Contour case hardened tyres and guide rollers are known worldwide for superior durability and reliability
- Sheave Wheels – TSP carburized and hardened sheave wheels are engineered to safely lift the most demanding heavy loads
- Brake Wheels – Xtek Steel Safe™ brake wheels are mechanically engineered to provide safe operation in the harshest environments
Our worldwide base of customers use Xtek wheel products in heavy duty applications within the most demanding and challenging applications. Xtek wheel delivery breakthroughs have elevated the standard for industrial wheel products throughout the industry. Xtek standard wheels are typically quoted at 6-8 weeks or even sooner when needed or if an emergency arises. In certain instances, we can make a wheel in as little as a week!
