SKF Vehicle Aftermarket will offer customers a firsthand look at its latest wheel-end products and innovations at TMC’s upcoming 2023 Annual Meeting & Transportation Technology Exhibition.
This year’s show will take place from Feb. 27 through March 2 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida, for a week of education, networking events and industry unveils. The SKF Vehicle Aftermarket team will be onsite at booth No. 413 to share their latest products designed to help customers achieve more productive wheel-end maintenance.
Among the products on display at this year’s event is SKF’s reimagined line of hubodometers (designed in partnership with Dynapar Corp.), featuring unsurpassed performance, reliability and accuracy. In addition, the company will highlight the TraX wheel-end monitor, an advanced sensor unit that intelligently monitors vibrations and easily detects damage to truck and trailer wheel bearings.
TMU hubs with integrated seals for Class 7 and 8 trucks and Truck Hub Unit 1 (THU1), offering easy-to-mount and dismount technology for bus and electric-vehicle applications, also will take center stage at TMC. Medium-duty rear wheel hubs, the industry’s first integrated, preassembled unit of its kind, and SKF Brakemaster air dryers, a revolutionary, high-performance solution for maintaining vehicle brake systems, will be featured as well, SFK noted.
SKF also will showcase the next generation of wheel-end assembly with the fully loaded trailer wheel hub, a powerful proprietary technology that is the lightest and most durable wheel hub in the trailer industry, according to the company. Also, on display at TMC will be re-engineered hubcaps, Scotseal X-Treme and SKF tapered roller bearings.
“At SKF, part of the value we offer the trucking industry is based on our solutions-oriented approach to wheel end assembly,” said Michael Hartman, director of national fleet sales at SKF Vehicle Aftermarket. “TMC’s annual exposition is a great opportunity to connect with customers and reinforce our commitment to providing full-service, innovative solutions that reduce downtime and improve productivity. Our lineup at this year’s show is our most environmentally focused yet – bridging the gap between efficiency and sustainability. Each product on display at TMC is designed to help fleet operators and drivers achieve greater operational uptime by mitigating the risk of unscheduled breakdowns and component failure.”
