Truck Brake Discs

The ever increasing adoption of disc instead of drums, as used in the past, allows:

A better dissipation of heat.
A noticeable reduction in brake fading.
Reducing braking distances.
A general improvement in active and passive safety.
Improved comfort concerning judder and squealing.

Raw material

Remsa Heavy Duty Line disc are made according to the standards required by the manufacturers of vehicles. They use grey cast iron in mechanical and microstructure specifications similar to the Original components.

First production process

During casting and specially during cooling, all measures are taking to avoid thermal stresses.
Accurate controls constantly check that the castings are free for cracks, micro suctions and other defects that may affect disc life and performance.

Precisely formed holes

Disc positioning is ensured by the precise placing of the central hole and radial holes.
The precision of machining, as required by the drawing, is controlled by sophisticated measuring instruments.

Parallelism and flatness

Machining takes place on CNC production lines capable of maintaining the correct parallelism and flatness.
The observance of strict tolerances is and absolute guarantee of a minimum DTV (Disc Thickness Variation) and also for a comfortable braking maneuver free of squealing and judder.

Product marking
Product is punch marked on the disc edge and showing:
Remsa trade mark
Product code
Batch number
Maker’s code Min th. (Minimum thickness)
Discs are them immersed into a special protective oil, to protect them againg corrosion during storage.
