Air Disc Brakes. Safe, precise and robust.
Drive safely and brake precisely, every time! Ensure you get the best performance from your commercial vehicles with Knorr-Bremse disc brakes and calipers. Mile for mile!
Reliable in every situation
Reliability is essential for brake calipers in commercial vehicles – with no compromises! Air Disc Brakes and rationalized Calipers are some of the most heavily loaded components in trucks, buses and trailers and are subjected to enormous forces. Braking systems in commercial vehicles develop clamping forces of over 25 tonnes and are exposed to temperatures of over 900 degrees and vigorous movements up to 25 times stronger than the force of gravity. In addition, they also face vibrations, cold, moisture, dust and dirt. Air Disc Brakes from Knorr-Bremse stand up to these challenges – without functional loss. Millions of miles on the road are the best proof of their strength and durability.
40 million Air Disc Brakes: for trucks, buses and trailers
Over 40 million Air Disc Brakes from Knorr-Bremse have been installed all over the world since 1992. Knorr-Bremse set a new standard with the introduction and development of pneumatically actuated disc brakes for commercial vehicles up to 44 tonnes and it has continued to expand its leading position as a provider of Air Disc Brakes and complete systems for commercial vehicles over time. Today, brake calipers from Knorr-Bremse are in use by almost all major OE manufacturers in wheel sizes 17.5”, 19.5” and 22.5” – in trucks, buses and trailer axles.
Knorr-Bremse rationalized Calipers: Part of our service concept
With our custom-tailored Knorr-Bremse service concept, we help ensure your commercial vehicles keep on running reliably and whenever needed, get them back on the road fast. The service concept includes maintenance and replacement of all spare parts, such as brake pads, brake discs, complete service kits and tools for professional disc brake maintenance.
In addition, we offer to the Aftermarket rationalized Calipers for all existing brakes. Instead of replacing the entire disc brake, including the brake carrier and brake pads, only the Caliper is replaced. This saves time and makes service more cost-efficient. Another advantage is that omitting the brake carrier and pads reduces variants, which results in less storage space needed.
EconX® remanufactured Calipers: an economical choice
We believe even high-mileage commercial vehicles deserve premium quality replacement parts. That is why we offer our genuine remanufactured EconX Calipers for vehicles with a short remaining service life as a cost optimized and safe alternative. As an OE manufacturer, we understand the technical requirements for each and every part in detail. Products are completely disassembled, cleaned and mechanically remanufactured during the process. Anything that can’t be given a “second life” is replaced with original new parts.
