ConMet releases new wheel-end products

ConMet introduces TruCast: a competitively priced aftermarket brake drum designed to ensure optimum braking performance.

“We relied on our proven TruTurn and CastLite brake drum technologies to create an affordable brake drum for heavy-duty truck and trailer applications,” says Mark Wagner, ConMet’s vice president of Wheel Ends.

ConMet says TruCast offers a weight-saving advantage as well. The 16.5 in. x 8.625 in. version is a full 9 lbs. lighter than a standard cast drum. Plus, there is a lightweight 16.5 in. x 7 in. drum that weighs only 106 lbs.

The company also says TruCast drums feature the following:

  • 100 percent balanced for vibration-free operation
  • Tested to meet the strictest FMVSS and OEM standards
  • Manufactured to ConMet’s industry-leading material and quality standards

TruCast Brake Drums are now available exclusively through dealer networks and ConMet Premier Partners, the company says.
