Meritor, Inc. announces the launch of several new braking solutions for multiple off-highway applications, including a full line of wet disc brakes, a high capacity hydraulic disc brake and a 500 mm drum brake. These new offerings expand Meritor’s range of off-highway brake options and enhance its portfolio of modular brakes, differential carriers and wheel-ends for multiple market segments.
”These new brakes, when combined with our global carriers and wheel-ends, will help us quickly meet customer requirements around the world,” says Joe Muscedere, Vice President, Off-Highway, Specialty and Defense for Meritor. “Global product designs combined with our regional manufacturing facilities around the world allow us to deliver world-class products with fast lead times.”
Meritor’s line of wet disc brakes are available in multiple configurations and range from 228-460 mm in diameter. The sealed designs are perfectly suited for a range of vehicles operating in adverse conditions.
Also launching is Meritor’s new high-capacity hydraulic disc brake. This option can be used in single- or dual-caliper configurations, suitable for multiple applications and machine capacities. Both configurations offer ample brake torque with the four 85-mm pistons acting against a 500-mm rotor.
The new lineup also includes a 500-mm drum brake, which incorporates Meritor’s improved S-cam design and lining materials to deliver high performance in a compact package. This brake is built for off-highway trucks with large wheel and tire combinations or for vehicles requiring higher brake torque than a 16.5-in. cast shoe brake.
Meritor introduced its braking solutions at bauma 2019 April 8-14 in Munich, Germany.
