Meritor has expanded its wheel end portfolio to include Opti-Lite brake drums, positioned as a cost-conscious lightweight drum option.

The Opti-Lite drum is designed for linehaul and weight sensitive applications such as tanker/trailer and freight.

Opti-Lite drums were developed on the same platform as the SteeLite X30 brake drums and the Opti-Lite offers similar weight and fuel savings, according to Meritor. The drums are offered most common wheel-end configurations for steer, drive and trailer axle applications.

The Opti-Lite drums do not require welded on weights and offer an optimized balance spec for smoother performance on the road.
