ArvinMeritor has introduced new lightweight wheel hubs to accompany TN, TQ, TP, and LMC series trailer axles. The LMC hub is a part of a unitized wheel end that contains a fully sealed, lubricated cartridge bearing. This eliminates seal leaks and provides precise bearing adjustment to reduce downtime and increase wheel end life. The hubs are up to 20% lighter in weight without sacrificing strength and durability, the company says. They will be available to commercial vehicle original equipment trailer manufacturers in North America.
