www.chinatrucks.com: Meritor, Inc. (NYSE: MTOR) today announced its EX+ air disc brake for tractors and trailers has been optimized to reduce product weight and total cost of ownership. The optimized EX+ will be available to OEMs in 2018.

"As demand for air disc brake systems is rising, we're leveraging 100 years of Meritor's industry leadership to develop and improve products and technologies such as the EX+," said Chris Villavarayan, president, Americas for Meritor. "By updating and optimizing the EX+, our engineers reduced weight by 10 pounds per brake to offer the lightest-weight truck ADB on the market while also maintaining reliability."

Built to maximize productivity by reducing maintenance time and costs, the gear-synchronized, twin-piston design delivers even force across the brake pads simultaneously, resulting in better performance and uniform pad wear. The EX+ offers shorter and smoother stopping distances and reduced brake fade. A patented double-sealing technology minimizes water exposure to seal the EX+ for life. It simplifies pad service steps – including 30-minute pad changes – and lowers maintenance costs with faster inspection and repair times.

"Fleets are beginning to see the benefits of air disc brakes, especially in safety and performance," Villavarayan said. "We have validated the EX+ in the most severe conditions to deliver superior performance and lower lifecycle costs."

Additionally, Meritor air disc brakes are compatible with most collision mitigation systems currently on the market. Fleets can also specify drum brakes on rear axles and ADBs on the front. When combined with Meritor's market-leading Q+™, fleets realize the benefits of an ADB but at reduced system cost.

Meritor's improved standard warranty now offers coverage of five years and 500,000 miles for both parts and labor on linehaul applications when specified with Meritor's exclusive friction. Meritor brakes are backed by DriveForce™ – Meritor's North America sales and service organization – to assist customers before, during and after the sale.
