LANSDALE, Pa., February 1, 2023 – SKF Vehicle Aftermarket will offer customers a first-hand look at their latest wheel end products and innovations at TMC’s upcoming 2023 Annual Meeting & Transportation Technology Exhibition — North America’s leading technical conference for all things trucking, which assembles the nation’s foremost fleet professionals, manufacturers, and suppliers of vehicle components. This year’s show will be hosted at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida from February 27 – March 2 for a week of education, networking events and industry unveils. The SKF Vehicle Aftermarket team will be onsite at booth #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 Corporation), featuring unsurpassed performance, reliability, and accuracy. In addition, the company will highlight 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 & 8 trucks and Truck Hub Unit 1 (THU1), offering easy-to-mount and dis-mount technology for bus and electric vehicle applications, will also 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. SKF will also 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. 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.”
