Consolidated Metco, better known as ConMet, has developed its own line of premium bearings.
The company has close to 50 years of developing, manufacturing and selling advanced wheel hub assemblies for the commercial vehicle industry,
“ConMet premium bearings are specifically designed to meet the challenging demands of today’s heavy-duty trucks,” explains Mark Wagner, Vice President/General Manager of ConMet’s wheel end division. “Truck OEMs and fleets are looking for wheel hub components that offer longer service intervals and the assurance of an industry-leading warranty. These new bearings provide both.”
ConMet premium bearings are designed and built for precision, performance and longevity. For instance:
- Precisely engineered profiles minimize raceway and roller stresses under heavy loads and provide better performance under light loads.
- The reduction in stresses at the roller ends reduces the sensitivity of the bearing to heavy cornering and misalignment.
- The highly-controlled honed surface finish is 40% smoother than current industry standards, resulting in improved rolling contact, reduced friction, lower operating temperatures and improved lubrication characteristics.
- When ConMet premium bearings are used in ConMet’s PreSet Plus hub assemblies, the combination is backed by an industry leading extended warranty.
ConMet premium bearings are available on PreSet Plus steer and drive hub assemblies for Class 8 vehicles.
