Meritor Inc. announced at Heavy Duty Aftermarket Week 2015 (HDAW) in Las Vegas Tuesday the expansion of its air disc brake (ADB) product line and introduced updated parts catalogs to support rising market demand.
The expansion, Meritor says, includes more than 150 part numbers for genuine Meritor ADB systems, such as the ADB1560, DX and EX+ models and over 130 Meritor AllFit part numbers covering brakes made by other manufacturers.
“As more vehicles are equipped with air disc brakes, the need for replacement products continues to grow,” says Aaron Bickford, director, Brake and Wheel End for Meritor. “These additions to our genuine and all-makes portfolios create a dynamic supply of aftermarket parts and strengthen our aftermarket industry leadership.”
Meritor’s EX+ aftermarket offering now includes more than 50 EX+ assemblies, such as calipers, kits and various wear items. The new selection of AllFit product includes brake pads, calipers, rotors, brake chambers and service kits covering the most widely used North American air disc brake models.
A revised version of the EX+ catalog, PB-8857B, contains more product details to make the ordering process quick and simple. It includes a reference guide for wearable parts, a disc pad compatibility chart showing the pad geometry and FMSI numbers, expanded views showing style differences and family group for each caliper.
The AllFit air disc brake catalog, PB-1461, covers Meritor’s Dura-Master and DX models, WABCO’s PAN series and other competitive models. The catalog includes key specification details such as the most popular Friction Material Standards Institute (FMSI) numbers, engineering drawings, dimensional data, competitive cross reference charts and expanded views.
“Our goal was to create tools to help make the specification and ordering process as easy as possible,” says Dennis Riedel, product manager, Aftermarket for Meritor. “These new air disc brake catalogs will be valuable resources for aftermarket customers.”
