Meritor releases Drivetrain on Demand

Meritor releases Drivetrain on Demand

Meritor, Inc. has launched Drivetrain on Demand to offer simplified ordering processes for U.S. and Canadian customers requiring fast replacement of driveshaft and differential assemblies, the company says.

“By streamlining the ordering process and shipping the product within 24 hours, Drivetrain on Demand helps get vehicles in truck-down situations back on the road quickly,” said Mark Holley, director of product management for Meritor.

The Drivetrain on Demand portfolio has more than 10,000 driveshaft assembly part numbers. Customers purchasing through Drivetrain on Demand can order driveshaft assemblies by part number on MeritorPartsXpress.com or provide OEM dealers with VIN numbers to order through their portal. Customers without a part number can order using form MISC 1783 to ensure proper manufacturing of replacement driveshafts by authorized rebuilders.

Meritor says it has enhanced the availability of driveshaft assemblies by including authorized rebuilders in Canada to this program. The offering includes Meritor 1610 –1810 series, RPL 20/25 series and Dana SPL 170/250 driveshaft assemblies with a two-year nationwide warranty.

Drivetrain on Demand is part of the North America Authorized Rebuilder Program. The company says since 2018, customers have been ordering Meritor 14X, 145 and 160 reman differentials built by authorized rebuilders that meet Meritor’s performance requirements. When Meritor receives an order for a replacement assembly, the company works with an authorized rebuilder closest to the end-user, and rebuilders ship custom-built units within 24 hours.

Hydrogen ICE vehicle shipments to hit 400,000 by 2040

Hydrogen ICE vehicles are most attractive for when battery electric alternatives are unavailable or not fit for purpose.

New research from Interact Analysis shows that hydrogen ICE vehicles are in their infancy in terms of rollout. However, mass production is predicted to take off within five years. Although the costs of the engine and the vehicles themselves are relatively low, their running costs are currently high, making the total cost of ownership (TCO) unfavorable. This, coupled with the lack of refueling infrastructure required, means they are less attractive compared with fuel cell and battery electric alternatives. Hydrogen ICE vehicles require a series of minor changes compared with traditional ICE vehicles, including different spark plugs and other changes to materials. On their own, individual changes do not present too much of a challenge, but in combination the total cost of manufacturing the vehicle soars. In addition to this, adding greater complexity increases the potential risks once the vehicle is in mass production.
