Consolidated Metco (ConMet) has introduced its next-generation wheel end technology, PreSet Plus, which adds features to address the requirements of 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 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.
