We are daily confronted with very special challenges to be satisfied by braking systems. For this reason, it is a part of our daily work to continually work on finding improvements. Never stop tinkering, filing and tickling the greatest possible advantages out of the smallest details.
A few of the innovations listed will give you an idea as to the extent to which we see ourselves as true hardbrakers.
Most of the time, the demands we place on ourselves are the highest. This way, in year-long tests, we have developed simulations and practical testing of our DDE ventilation system.
Thanks to this patented system, the temperature of the brake disc and the brake linings can be reduced considerably - and as such, at the same time, also the wear. The show-stopper: It's about a very special arrangement of the air ducts – in combination with the large surface of the DDE, the warmth can be released much faster to the air than usually.
Only due to the use of this elaborate ventilation system, our braking systems are able to stop racing cars, sports cars or heavily-loaded vehicles continuously and reliably, despite higher speeds.
Like all our technologies, developments and innovations, the DDE system is part of a well-wrought and carefully-developed braking system that has been diligently planned right down to the very last detail.
Best results are attained, thanks to the optimal interaction of the perfectly-aligned components:
- Intelligent airflow
- Largest possible surface
- Rapid transfer of frictional heat via the disc to the ambient air
- Low temperature
- Low wear
- High service life
Conventional ceramic brake discs are produced in a cost-optimised procedure. Here, on a core of silicon carbide, which is strengthened by short carbon fibres, a friction coating with a thickness of about 0.5mm is applied on both sides. This kind of production has a number of disadvantages:
- Limited thermal conductivity,
- Low thermal capacity &
- High susceptibility when it comes to mechanical strains,
which result in the brake disc breaking.
In many years of intensive research, we could perfect the elaborate CCF (Crossed Continuous Fibre) production process with the partner "Surface Transforms Plc.". Now, when compared with brake discs of grey cast iron, it's possible for us to overcome the disadvantages of conventional ceramic brake discs and, at the same time, unite the advantages of both materials.
For the production of our ceramic brake discs, consistent acrylic fibres are laid over each other at 90° orientation and connected. Then, in various processes, these are converted to a carbon brake disc. In a final step, our ceramic discs are finished in a high vacuum by the infiltration of silicon carbide. Thanks to the CCF™ (Crossed Continuous Fibre) system, optimal thermal conductivity, the highest possible stability against mechanical influences and a highly homogeneous material structure is attained, which, in addition to this, increases the burst speed by about 22%. Additional advantages are listed below:
- Very high thermal capacity
- Highest possible thermal conductivity
- omogeneous material structure (pressable ceramics)
- Reduced system temperature
- Absolute fading resistance
Our Innovation RAPAD-X is derived from "Rapid Pad Exchange". This innovation allows simple and uncomplicated exchange of the disc brake caliper (despite the functional purpose, which is aligned to maximum force) and the brake linings – without dismantling the complete disc brake caliper.
RAPAD-X is an absolute must-have for racing situations and ambitious hobby racing drivers.
Our patented CROWN system allows precise determination of the direction of the brake line and its fixation. By means of this, there is no shift or deviation due to vibration or tension. This system is an essential component of our complete system and is used in all of our disc brake calipers.
Needless to say, the dissipation direction can be changed.
- Direction of the brake line permanently fixable
- No impairment due to vibration or tension
- Ideal combination with our steel-flex brake lines
