Featured Innovation Project:
PreSet Plus® SmartHub
Maximize uptime through wheel end performance data
With technology disruptions in the connected vehicle ecosystem, ConMet is incorporating telematics in the wheel end space to create a connected hub platform that helps fleets increase uptime and reduce the total cost of ownership to stay ahead of the curve. The PreSet Plus SmartHub is the industry’s first health monitoring system in the wheel end and is another step toward enabling autonomous driving in the near future.
The SmartHub contains embedded sensors that monitor and transmit data about critical wheel end health indicators, including: hub temperature, hub vibration, speed, and miles traveled.
- Monitor wheel end health
- Seamless integration with existing cloud platforms
- Leverage data to take action
- Receive timely alerts
INNOVATION PRODUCT RELEASE:
Snap-In ABS Tone Ring
Engineered for durability and performance.
- Tabs machined into rotor maintain ABS tone ring position while limiting direct contact with rotor to prevent warping.
- Retaining ring snaps into the ramped grooves in each tab to hold ABS tone ring securely in place.
- Snap-in design maintains strong axial hold that withstands road vibrations to avoid ring chattering.
- Incorporated into a lightweight hub assembly to maximize payload.
- Stainless steel retaining ring naturally resists corrosion.
- High performance, anti-corrosion coating applied to ABS tone ring resists rust-jacking and corrosion of ABS tone ring teeth when exposed to road salts and other road contaminants.
- No fasteners or torque tools needed, simply position the ABS tone ring and snap the retaining ring into place by hand.
- When replacement is necessary, spend less time on maintenance, increasing vehicle uptime.

PreSet Plus® Electric Hub
Improve fuel economy and vehicle performance
Evolving regulations place increased pressure on fleet managers to strike the right balance between improved fuel economy and performance. ConMet is collaborating with key motor and integration experts to bring PreSet® technology and e-mobility to the wheel end. The ConMet Preset Plus Electric Hub (eHub) is designed to capture wasted braking energy and repurposes it as electricity to provide vehicular propulsion and auxiliary power in a lightweight package.
- Lightweight, flexible packaging
- Reduced maintenance costs
- Fewer emissions, less noise
