The products of Meritor

The Meritor brand and what it stands for

Meritor is one of the world’s leading suppliers to original equipment manufacturers. It occupies a privileged position in the after-sales market, in the transport and industrial sectors.

The origins of the brand date back to 1909, when Timken Detroit Axle was founded. Nearly a century later, the company renamed its automotive spin-off Meritor. Since that year, its logo has practically remained unchanged.

It should be noted that in 2022 Cummins Inc. announced the total acquisition of Meritor. This will position Cummins as a leading provider of integrated powertrain solutions. Especially in internal combustion and electric power application. All this, thanks to the integration of Meritor’s people, products and capabilities in axle and brake technology.

The vision of the company

The company has more than 100 years of history. Meritor has stood out for its innovative spirit, its strength in decision-making and its values.

Meritor’s vision is to become the world leader in providing advanced solutions. For what exactly? Transmission, mobility, braking and after-sales for industrial and commercial vehicles.

To achieve this, bet on:

  • Anticipate the needs of your customers.
  • Develop innovative products with superior energy efficiency and reliability.
  • Fulfill your commitments.
  • Being socially and environmentally responsible.
  • Bet on teamwork, recognize the power of collaboration and respect different opinions.

Meritor’s “bull”

If something characterizes the brand, it is its bull logo, accompanied by the slogan “Run With The Bull”.

The Meritor logo is divided into two parts. On the one hand, the pictorial part made up of a winged bull on lightning, which is directed towards the lower right corner. On the other hand, the name of the brand ‘Meritor’ is shown in large, in white -on a black background- or in gray -on a white background-.

In this way, when the logo is displayed on the black background of the corporate website, the colors stand out. In this way, the symbology of courage, decision, speed, strength, energy and authority of the brand is reinforced.

Finally, it should be noted that the logo is usually accompanied by the slogan “Run With The Bull”. Which according to the brand itself is: “A symbol of power”. A symbol of not getting in the way because we will not stop for anything. When you run with the bull, it means something more than being farsighted. It means acting forward. Run With The Bull it’s a compromise.

Now that it is clear to you that we are Meritor Distributors, and that you can obtain the spare part you need through us… Don’t forget that we offer you a wide range of Meritor brand spare parts, such as braking system components, axles, differentials and their exploded view, among others.

Discover the differences between long block and short block

Become an expert and master the characteristics and differences of the different engine blocks.

If you work in the sector, or you are passionate about mechanics, you have surely heard about the long block and short block. These have a relevant role in all vehicles and, although you may know them in broad strokes, you may still have some doubts about their differences and characteristics.

But… don’t worry! The #TeamMonedero explains in this post the main differences so that you have it clear. We are experts in components for heavy and light commercial vehicles, special vehicles and buses. In this section, we will tell you everything you need to know, keep reading!

What they are, differences and characteristics

The engine block is a cast iron or aluminum structure in which all the parts of an engine are located. Thus, when you order a block (also known as a naked block) in the workshop, you should know that you are only getting the structure and, on it, you will have to assemble the rest of the elements to complete the engine.

However, when we talk about short and long blocks, the main difference lies in the number of parts included in each of them. Do you want to know more? Don’t miss the following sections!

Short block

The short block or short block engine is the lower part of the engine. It includes the cylinder block, where the combustion chambers are located, and has different individual parts such as the crankshaft, the camshaft, the engine equipment (piston + cylinder liners), the bushings, the cooler and the oil pump.

Among the advantages of a short block we can highlight that its initial price is cheaper and that it allows greater customization. However, among its disadvantages, we can highlight that it requires a longer installation time, since the different components must be checked and assembled by the customer.

Below, you can see a picture of one of the most sold short blocks: the Mercedes Benz OM651 short block with reference 10010300061, which you can find in our b2b web platform.

Long block

The long block engine includes both the short block, which is the lower part of the engine, and the upper part.

Thus, the long block will include components such as the cylinder head and sometimes camshaft plus rocker arms. Even so, it should be noted that the engine would not be complete, because it would still have to add some components such as the fuel system and the intake and exhaust manifolds, among others.

Among the advantages of a long block we can highlight that the parts included are already adjusted, which also saves time. However, it has some disadvantages such as, the initial price is higher and you can not customize it, which may lead many to prefer the short block.

Below is a picture of one of the best-selling long blocks: the MAN D2676 long block with reference number 20010400018, which you can find on our b2b web platform.

Monedero improves the block for Scania DT12

Auto Comercial Monedero has developed a new version of Scania’s DT12 block with the purpose of increasing its strength and durability.

The leading company in the automotive sector has optimized one of the best-selling in its catalog, the Scania’s DT12 engine block. This new version is characterized by a new engine block cover, which softens the curvature of the previous version, increasing the resistance and life of the product!

The new release can be found on the Auto Comercial Monedero B2B web platform by searching for the Monedero reference number: 40010000001. This reference is equivalent to the original Scania references: 1424706, 1540323, 1851982, 2027585, 1425318, 1720096 and 2055383.

The new version of the block is compatible with Scania P/G/R/T series truck models, Irizar PB and Century buses, as well as Scania K/F/N series buses.

The bench cover

Scania’s first DT12 block was launched in 2018 and has been in constant evolution ever since. In the latest version, it debuts a new design of the engine bed cover, in which the curvature of previous models is softened, resulting in greater strength.

The engine main cover is one of the most relevant elements in the lubrication circuit. It is located just below the engine block, but always above the crankcase. The crankshaft is also located inside the part.

Among its functions, we can highlight the solidity it offers to the engine and the containment of the force generated by the crankshaft rotation. It also acts as a retaining wall for the oil.

Due to the important role it plays within the engine mechanism, it is of vital importance that it is resistant to avoid as much wear as possible due to the forces and high temperatures.

Although it is not usual, it can suffer breakdowns due to the passage of time or due to factory defects, such as the loss of liquids responsible for lubrication and cooling of the engine. This could lead to engine failure.

Reverse engineering is a process that is carried out with the objective of obtaining information from the design of a product. Through its implementation, it is possible to determine which components make up the product, as well as the way in which they act with each other.
