The company notes are the same drums that will be used at a factory production level on many of its truck models later in the year.
Manufactured to SAE and ASTM standards, the International brake drums are subjected to stringent quality audits for both the product and manufacturing process.
Many models of the new International brake drums feature machined-to-balance engineering, and lean manufacturing techniques, resulting in 2-4 pounds weight savings per drum, and improved heat dissipation when compared to traditional designs. This delivers improved cost per mile, and a longer life expectancy through an improved heat transfer process and anti-corrosion protection, according to the company.
International brake drums are available through International/IC truck and bus dealerships and offer a one-year/unlimited mileage warranty.
