Consolidated Metco has introduced the PreSet Plus, building on the 16-year success of its PreSet hub assembly.

ConMet has added features to address the requirements of today's heavy duty trucks and trailers. A new integrated spindle nut design simplifies installation, protects components during installation and removal, and aids in removal of the assembly during service.

The patent-pending nut also increases clamp, improves safety, and eliminates adjustments required to engage a locking ring. A new bearing spacer has been optimized for the PreSet Plus system to accommodate the higher clamp loads.

"PreSet Plus provides OEM's with a product that is even easier to install and makes it whole lot easier for technicians to service," said Mark Wagner, VP of Wheel Ends for ConMet. "While PreSet took the difficult task of bearing adjustment out of the hands of the operatorr, PreSet Plus goes a step further by providing a self-piloting assembly that only requires the integrated nut to be torqued and a retaining snap ring to be engaged."

All components are field serviceable. Bearings are pre-adjusted (no bearing adjustment is required). A long-life oil seal is standard. Magnetic fill plug is available for drive and trailer hubs for inspection of metal particles in lubricant.

PreSet Plus hub assemblies are available in aluminum for lightweight solutions and in iron for non-weight sensitive applications. There are designs for steer, drive and trailer axles as well as for disc and drum brakes.
