ArvinMeritor offers a series of heavy-duty axles designed to meet the demands of all-terrain cranes. Features include flexible manufacturing, enabling axle section and length customization for varying capacity and track requirements; improved performance and durability via heavy-duty carriers that offer low maintenance, longer life, and greater torque capacity; and axle ratios from 8.5 to 14.2 for more selection. An air disk brake improves off-highway performance, and most facets of the design are customizable. Instead of casting the housing, ArvinMeritor fabricates the product using steel plates to allow size variations without retooling, improving production and reducing lead times by up to 50%. The company also uses gear manufacturing technology to meet the need for planetary wheel-ends and differentials in cranes, terminal tractors, loaders, mining trucks, and forklifts.
