The new WABCO-branded aftermarket solutions ZF unveiled today include:

– WABCO EasyFitTM Automatic Slack Adjusters. Available for both truck and trailer applications, EasyFitTM Automatic Slack Adjusters (ASAs) can automatically compensate wear of the brake lining so the stroke of the brake cylinders remains unchanged. They are also powder-coated for corrosion protection and designed with durability in mind. Quick and easy to install, the adjusters are designed to be maintenance-free, featuring a sealed, lubricated-for-life housing.

– Cummins Remanufactured Air Compressors now available directly to the independent aftermarket. Launched at HDAW ‘20, ZF’s

remanufactured air compressor portfolio now includes Cummins remanufactured air compressors made available directly to independent aftermarket customers.

Additional WABCO Reman Solutions products include air dryers, automated manual transmissions, hydraulic power brake systems and Enhanced Easy-StopTM trailer anti-lock braking (ABS) systems.

– Additional WABCO OnGuardACTIVE® Collision Mitigation System (CMS) retrofit kits. Five new retrofit kits have been added to the OnGuardACTIVE® retrofit portfolio, enabling fleets to install the advanced active safety technology on most Freightliner P3 Cascadia 2013-2020 model year vehicles.
