Weight Saving Potential in the Chassis – Wheel Hub with Integrated Brake Disk Connection

The wheel hub and brake disk are two important parts in the chassis. The typical interaction of both parts is shown in the upper left of the image: The pot-shaped brake disk is fastened together with the wheel by wheel bolts onto the wheel hub (which in turn is fixed onto the load-carrying chassis part by means of a roller bearing). This demands a high amount of material between the functional surface of the brake disk and the central connection.
