Auto-Torq, the company’s latest wheel-end solution, designed to improve safety and efficiency in the installation process

Stemco recently launched the new Auto-Torq axle fastener.

The advanced wheel-end product is designed to streamline wheel-end installation by eliminating the need for complex processes and specialty tools, the manufacturer said. With no need for washers, clips, snap rings, screws, or keepers, Auto-Torq makes installation “simple and efficient.” Plus, by applying the optimum clamp load on the bearings every time, bearing wear is minimized, resulting in the longest bearing service life.

“We’re proud to announce the launch of Auto-Torq, a product that reflects our deep commitment to ‘Making the Roadways Safer,’” Chip Stuhr, Stemco vice president and general manager, said in a news release. “This is one of the most revolutionary products in our long history of innovation, and we are excited for the impact it will have on the industry.”

Auto-Torq offers an all-in-one solution that is compatible with any industry hub manufacturer, Stemco added. By reducing potential causes of installation failure, operators can have peace of mind knowing their components are installed securely in place. Also, when combined with Stemco’s seals, bearings, and hubcaps, customers can benefit from extended warranties on their wheel ends.
