Webb Wheel Products has introduced a new brake drum. The Webb Vortex boasts a lighter weight without sacrificing structural integrity or braking capability, Webb officials have announced. It also runs cooler, thanks to a repositioned squealer band and reinforced exterior ribs, which direct heat away from the braking surface also extending lining life in the process. The company is currently working with major equipment OEMs to determine availability on new trucks and trailers.

Trailers electronics are becoming more complex and road de-icers more corrosive, which is why Truck-Lite has unveiled a new junction box. The Super 50 trailer junction box is made from chemically-and electrically-inert, impact-resistant ABS plastic. A clear lid allows technicians or drivers to see the wiring inside the box without opening it. The assembly is sealed from corrosive agents with a silicone gasket. The Super 50 box also allows for 50% more circuits than ordinary boxes, Truck-Lite officials claim. For more information, visit www.truck-lite.com.
