Automotive Brake Calipers Market: Introduction

Automotive brakes are one of the most important parts of any automobile, if there are any flaws and failures in the system it may endanger the life of driver, occupants and pedestrians as well as cause significant economical loss to the vehicle. This system must be checked regularly and should be well maintained in order to ensure vehicle and road safety. Brake calipers are one of the most essential components in safely stopping the vehicle at the correct time; additionally, it is arguably one of the constituent parts in the automotive braking system. Most of the vehicles today have disc brakes installed for effective braking. At least for the front wheels, disc brakes are connected, but many trucks and cars are now mounting disc brakes on all the four wheels. In a disc braking assembly, the vehicle’s wheels are connected to the metal disc or rotor, which is spinning along the wheels. The function of brake calipers is to slow, and eventually, stop the vehicle’s wheels by the creating a friction force with the rotors of the vehicle. Brake calipers are mounted over the rotor of the vehicle, like a clamp. The construction of brake calipers is such that they have metal plates fixed with a friction material, known as brake pads. When the driver is applying brakes, by pressing the brake pedal he is actually forcing the brake calipers with the brake pads against the rotor of the wheels and thus, the vehicle is slows down and eventually stops due to this action. Once the rotor stops or slows down, consequently, so does wheel, as they are connected to each other.

This braking system should be designed and manufactured with precision, as even a small manufacturing defect can risk human life. Hence, braking assemblies, including brake calipers are manufactured with utmost quality and accuracy to avoid mechanical failures during the operation of the vehicles. Recent advancement and increasing manufacturing ability has enabled the automotive industry to design and manufacture flawless braking systems.
