TROY, Mich., April 30, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Meritor, Inc. (NYSE:MTOR) today announced the launch of its MOX-32, a 32,000-pound rated planetary front-drive steer axle for heavy-duty and off-highway applications, as well as the MON-32, a 32,000-pound rated non-drive steer axle for applications that haul demanding loads but do not require a driven front axle.
"Built in Laurinburg, North Carolina, these new axles are engineered for strength and durability to meet performance requirements and higher capacity demands in multiple applications," said Steven Luepke, director, Off-Highway for Meritor. "The launch of the MOX-32 and the non-drive MON-32 axles continues Meritor's commitment to innovation."
The company engineered the MOX-32 to include proven Meritor carriers and a broad axle ratio range from 3.46 to 24.82 to fit the performance and productivity demands of different applications. An optional driver-controlled differential lock (DCDL) enhances traction. The MOX-32 can be configured to any track length for custom applications, and central tire inflation compatibility has been added based on customer need.
The MOX-32 includes Meritor P6 four-planet wheel-ends to offer a common, robust planetary gearing configuration fully validated for the toughest off-highway applications. Anti-lock braking system capability delivers improved stopping performance and safety.
