Consolidated Metco Inc. (ConMet), a provider of lightweight/low-maintenance technology for the commercial vehicle industry, has introduced an interactive PreSet hub training CD-ROM designed for service technicians.

“This CD-ROM allows technicians to become familiar with the proper service procedures for our industry-standard PreSet wheel hub technology,” says Larry Sanford, national sales manager for Portland, Ore.-based ConMet. “The technician can complete the hub training on their schedule, at their location with virtually the same content provided by our regional service managers in a more formal on-site training session. It offers the greatest flexibility to the director of maintenance, who is constantly trying to keep his technicians up to date with the latest service information without taking them off the shop floor for extended periods of time.”

ConMet says the CD-ROM instructs technicians on the proper identification, removal, servicing and reinstallation of ConMet’s PreSet hub assemblies. Technicians answer questions at the end of each chapter and are notified of their overall score; after successfully completing the training session and correctly answering the questions, the technician is able to print out a customized PreSet hub training “Certification of Achievement.”

“This CD-ROM provides access for our customers, both large and small, to the training they need to properly service PreSet hubs,” Sanford says. “It can be used by itself or in conjunction with a training session conducted by a ConMet service manager.”

The 45-minute training session uses realistic animation to illustrate and explain detailed instructions on such subjects as:

  • Inspection and preventative maintenance;
  • Lubricant requirements;
  • Hub removal and disassembly;
  • Functional checks;
  • End play measurement;
  • Inspection, repair and replacement of hub and hub components; and
  • Hub pilot vs. ball seat wheel mounting systems.
  • A section of frequently asked questions is available at the end of the training program. For more information, call 800-547-9473 or go to
