Haldex: Haldex introduces the ModulT Air Disc Brake in USA

Haldex is pleased to introduce its ModulT Air Disc Brake product line
in USA. The unique design of the ModulT Air Disc Brake meets
increased customer demands for performance, robustness, service
uptime, weight and total cost of ownership. By meeting the toughest
demands on low weight combined with high efficiency, ModulT provides
uniform stopping performance while maximizing brake effort.

"With our commitment to developing products to better serve our fleet
customers, Haldex is pleased to continue to set that standard in air
brake systems by introducing the ModulT air disc brake in USA," said
Bo Annvik, President & CEO for Haldex.

With a compact, modular design, ModulT is lightweight and optimized
for on-highway applications. In addition to its size, ModulT provides
several distinct advantages including lower weight-to-braking force
ratio, simplified maintenance that reduces downtime and low
hysteresis that produces high braking efficiency.

The first member of the ModulT family to be introduced in USA is the
22.5-inch optimized trailer brake, weighing 70 pounds including pads.
It will soon be followed with 19.5-inch and 22.5-inch air disc brake
sizes for trucks and buses.

Efficient modular design

The ModulT air disc brake product line has a unique wide single-piston
mechanism, which is able to achieve performance equal to twin-piston
mechanisms, providing superior braking capability and even load
distribution on the brake pads. Because the mechanism bellows seal is
uniquely inverted, it protects itself against heat radiation, stones
and other debris. The mechanism lever uses double roller bearings to
keep the hysteresis low, which results in high efficiency and
provides greater control and stability.

The floating lightweight caliper slides on two completely,
environmentally sealed stainless steel slide pins. It utilizes
leading edge steel PTFE-coated bushings and trailing composite
bushings to produce optimized low friction caliper sliding for
smoother, trouble-free operation. In addition, the slide function is
lubrication-free and sealed for life so it doesn't require grease
servicing.

Simplifies maintenance

To simplify maintenance and reduce downtime for the fleet, the unique
boltless brake pad retainer requires no special tools to replace the
brake pads. The entire air disc brake design is optimized to include
only two fastening bolts and no mechanism cover plate. The ModulT
incorporates a reliable integrated adjustment unit to automatically
compensate for brake pad wear.

"The ModulT air disc brake is the perfect solution for fleets looking
for high efficiency with greater control and stability for a long
service life with lower total cost of ownership," said Jeff Stokes,
Global Product Manager - Disc Brakes for Haldex.

Haldex provides additional options to meet fleet demands with an
optional Pad Wear Indicator (PWI), which warns of a worn out pad; or
an optional Pad Wear Sensor (PWS), which minimizes pad inspection
time and costs.
