Meritor enjoys a market-leading position with cost of
ownership optimized through the application of advanced predictive techniques
and innovative manufacturing processes. We are the world’s largest producer of
Z-cam, S-cam and wedge air drums for trucks. Through our Aftermarket business,
we provide Meritor, Euclid and Fras-Le replacement parts.
One example of an industry-leading offering is the
Meritor Q Plus™ (pictured above) cam brake. Performance, serviceability,
dependability, simple operation and proven design are the factors that have made
the Q Plus an industry standard. The Q Plus increases service life and mileage
between relines by using thicker lining blocks. Because of these thicker
linings, we specially designed an S-cam and heavy-duty shoe return spring to
provide additional brake shoe travel for full wear. An improved camshaft bushing
also contributes to longer service life.
Q Plus brakes are available for steer, drive and
trailer axle applications and provide greatly enhanced stopping power. In their
high performance steer axle application, for example, there is up to 100 percent
more torque and 65 percent more wearable lining than standard 15” x 4” brakes.
