New ConMet Premium Bearings
Vancouver, WA – With close to 50 years of developing, manufacturing and selling the most advanced wheel hub assemblies in the commercial vehicle industry, Consolidated Metco (ConMet) has now developed its own line of premium bearings.
“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 OEM’s 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.
Consolidated Metco, a major Class 8 truck supplier, is a subsidiary of AMSTED Industries, one of the world’s largest transportation component manufacturers, specializing in products that serve the rail, heavy-duty vehicle, automotive, construction/building, and general industrial markets.
