Accuride Corporation, a supplier of wheel-end systems to the commercial vehicle industry, recently introduced its long-life KIC-brand ROLLiant hub system as a standard hub on CIMC Intermodal Equipment’s 2019 premium spec chassis.
This new chassis from CIMC Intermodal will be the intermodal industry’s longest-lasting, high-end standard spec chassis, Accuride said, and carry the longest warranty thanks, in part, to the 10-year warranty on the ROLLiant system.
“We’re honored to provide the industry-first, 10-year hub system warranty for the CIMC Intermodal Equipment 2019 Premium Spec Chassis,” said John Schneider, president of Accuride Wheel End Solutions.
“We developed ROLLiant in response to industry demand for an affordable hub system that was easy to install and maintain. We wanted to ensure it could last the life of a range of applications, including intermodal trailers.
“This has been a great opportunity to work with CIMC Intermodal to make ROLLiant more widely available to the intermodal segment.”
ROLLiant is the industry’s first long-life, low-maintenance hub system to come with a 10-year warranty. The technology was designed for North American commercial vehicle fleets seeking long-life hub performance, and truck and trailer OEMs who want to simplify wheel-end installation and boost throughput during assembly.
The ROLLiant System Includes:
- Precision-machined hub with fill port for easy lubrication
- Pre-installed ROLLiant extended bearing cones
- Bearing cups installed
- Factory-installed seal
- Spindle nut system
- Hubcap and gasket
- Patent-pending packaging maintains Accuride’s stringent hub cleanliness standards
