INSPIRING NEW PRODUCTS,
NEW PROCESSES, AND NEW PARTNERSHIPS
THROUGH INNOVATION.

bracket

ConMet has been innovating since our inception in 1964 with the purpose of designing and manufacturing lightweight structural parts to the heavy duty market – something that wasn’t currently being done. Over the last 50+ years we have continued to prove that our position as the leader in the commercial vehicle market comes from constantly seeking ways to provide new and more efficient products, processes, and technology that change the way our customers run and maintain their vehicles.

Check back for updates on exciting products we are working on.

We are always open to new ideas and partnerships and would love to hear from you. To contact someone from our innovation & strategic partnership department please email us at innovation@conmet.com.

Featured Innovation Project:

PreSet Plus SmartHub™

Monitor the Health of Your Wheel End
The PreSet Plus SmartHub will enable drivers and fleet managers to monitor a variety of hub conditions:

  • Hub Temperature
  • Lubricant Level
  • Unique in-wheel solution increases fuel efficiency
  • Hub Vibration
  • Spindle Nut Torque
  • Miles Traveled
  • Hub Load
  • Bolt Tension
  • Speed

COMPLETED INNOVATION PROJECT:

Snap-In ABS Tone Ring

Engineered for durability and performance

  • Tabs machined into rotor maintain ABS tone ring position while limiting direct contact with rotor to prevent warping.
  • Retaining ring snaps into the ramped grooves in each tab to hold ABS tone ring securely in place.
  • Snap-in design maintains strong axial hold that withstands road vibrations to avoid ring chattering.
  • Incorporated into a lightweight hub assembly to maximize payload.
  • Stainless steel retaining ring naturally resists corrosion.
  • High performance, anti-corrosion coating applied to ABS tone ring resists rust-jacking and corrosion of ABS tone ring teeth when exposed to road salts and other road contaminants.
  • No fasteners or torque tools needed, simply position the ABS tone ring and snap the retaining ring into place by hand.
  • When replacement is necessary, spend less time on maintenance, increasing vehicle uptime.
