A cold roll formed axle shaft is subjected to a great deal of pressure via cam-like tooling dies in the mill machine that imprint the shaft with splines. The intense pressure re-arranges the grain structure of the metal which ensures consistent hardness throughout the spline teeth and shaft unlike a cut-spline technique where material is removed from the shaft to create the splines. Yukon seals the deal with its induction hardening process where the axle is heated with an induction coil to around 1,600-degrees Fahrenheit then quenched, ensuring the proper heat penetration is achieved. Again, grain alignment within the metal and enhanced strength is the big benefit. Ultimately, the attention to detail that Yukon brings to the table results in an axle that is primed to absorb tons of trail abuse and provide years of dependable service.
