Consolidated Metco (ConMet) has launched a new online catalog and other web tools through its website.
The online catalog features more than 60 ConMet hubs, including hub/cup/stud, PreSet, and PreSet Plus assemblies for both tractors and trailers; more than a dozen varieties of CastLite, TruTurn, and standard cast brake drums; and ConMet Premium Seals, Bearings, and spindle nuts.
A user-friendly search function allows store.conmet.com visitors to look up part numbers, no matter who makes them, and provides a ConMet equivalent. A locator tool allows visitors to find their nearest dealer or distributor to purchase the part in person if they wish.
This launch follows closely after the release of ConMet Hub Training 2.0. The second generation of this training includes more subject matter on PreSet Plus hub assemblies, and greater detail on hubs and other ConMet wheel-end products.
Unlike the previous training module, Hub Training 2.0 can be viewed on a mobile device and does not require Flash software. Trainees can jump from chapter to chapter, rather than having to proceed linearly. After successfully completing the training, participants will still be able to print a ConMet Training Certificate.
“As more countermen, owner/operators, and maintenance managers use the web and mobile devices to find information and training on heavy duty products, ConMet is meeting their needs,” said Denise Reeves, vice president of marketing at ConMet. “By presenting this information in such a user friendly format, we intend to drive sales of our products through our dealer and distributor networks.”
