ConMet has introduced TruCast, a competitively priced brake drum designed to ensure optimum braking performance for heavy-duty truck and trailer applications.
TruCast offers a weight-saving advantage as well, the company says. The 16.5 x 8.625-in. version is said to be a full 9 lb lighter than a standard cast drum. Plus, there’s a lightweight 16.5 x 7 drum on offer that weighs only 106 lb.
TruCast drums are 100% balanced for vibration-free operation, says ConMet, and they’re tested to meet the strictest FMVSS/CFMVSS and OEM standards.
Also, ConMet has released updated hub rebuild kits. They come in several configurations to meet the rebuilding needs of PreSet and PreSet Plus hubs.
