Not only does this process make the drums stronger, but it creates other advantages such as uniform thermal expansion for reduced brake pulsing, and improved heat transfer, so the drum and brake linings stay cooler. Braking force is more evenly distributed, and occurrences of vibration and “judder” are minimized. With each stop, TruTurn brake drums maintain lower temperatures, maximize durability, minimize wear, and improve brake performance. Stays Cool During Crucial Stops Traditional cast brake drums are only machined on the inside, which can cause inconsistencies in the wall thickness and lead to drum cracking from ‘hot spots’ and uneven heat distribution. TruTurn brake drums are machined inside and out, so 95% of their surface area is precisely shaped to ensure dimensional consistency. This makes for more uniform heat distribution, which means the drum and linings stay cooler during crucial stops. Cooler drums last longer, improve performance, and save money on maintenance over the long haul. Surpasses the Competition Test after test, in the lab and on the highway, TruTurn brake drums beat the competition. They surpass the accepted standards of industry performance testing. With the increase in dimensional precision, they outperform traditional cast drums in many applications. Utilizing the latest engineering and manufacturing techniques, TruTurn brake drums exceed customer expectations for performance and quality at an affordable price. Additionally, the TruTurn design meets Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS) 121, giving you added confidence in this reliable product. Choose the Better Brake Drum With proper maintenance and regular inspections, TruTurn brake drums can keep your vehicle on the road, safely and efficiently. TruTurn Technology is Tried and True Utilizing the skills of experienced wheel end engineers and the power of advanced computer modeling, ConMet developed TruTurn brake drum technology. Computer- Aided- Design (CAD), Finite Element Analysis (FEA), solidification modeling, and rapid prototypes are all a part of the unique development process. Prototyping, static strength, and fatigue are just a few of the testing procedures used to guarantee the reliability of TruTurn and TruTurn Lite brake drums. Finite Element Analysis ensures stress levels are reduced and the drum is optimized for less weight, higher strength, and uniform heat distribution. August 6, 2019 (07ConMet TruTurn Brake Drums)
