SKF, Haldex partnering on wheel ends

The SKF Group and the Haldex Group have joined forces to develop what they are calling a “more compact and efficient” wheel end system for heavy vehicles.

The new system will combine Haldex’s next-generation fixed caliper dual disc brakes with SKF’s hub bearing and sealing technology. According to the companies, the end result should be improved safety and performance, and more optimal vehicle design.

Through this new wheel end concept, Haldex and SKF said they hope to provide fleets with a number of benefits, including longer brake service life, increased uptime, higher performance, reduced vehicle weight, and increased payload capacity, as well as making brakes easier to maintain and replace.
