Brake callipers

 Cast iron

The brake calliper is an important component on a disc brake. In the modern car industry, they are made of cast iron (GGG50) or aluminium. The brake calliper is an essential safety component that must withstand high thermal and mechanical loads.

A key aim in machining brake callipers is to achieve the highest levels of process reliability and dimensional stability. In the face of ever-increasing pressure from competition, another indispensable ingredient of success in mass production is the ability to minimise per-part costs while maintaining superior quality. Our tools are up to the task.
