STEMCO Launches New Zip-Torq® Axle Fastener

LONGVIEW, Texas (December 15, 2016) — STEMCO, an EnPro Industries company (NYSE: NPO) and leading manufacturer of heavy-duty components and solutions for commercial vehicles, has released the new Zip-Torq® single-piece axle fastener.

Zip-Torq® simplifies and streamlines the wheel end bearing adjustment with its single-piece, unitized design. The Zip-Torq® eliminates special tooling and loose components like clips, keepers, snap rings or screws.

The patented Zip-Torq® heavy-duty self-locking mechanism also delivers increased simplicity and safety by preventing inadvertent back-off. Consistent locking force is maintained by the high-strength wave spring, further eliminating unwanted back-off.

“Zip-Torq is the natural result of our safety culture and decades of progress developing wheel end systems,” said Chip Stuhr, Director of STEMCO Wheel End products. “The STEMCO Pro-Torq nut revolutionized the way a wheel end was adjusted and set, and Zip-Torq is the next step in our mission of Making the Roadways Safer.”
