A com­mit­ment to brak­ing

Motor Equipment News - - NEWS -

Brak­ing sys­tems were in­tro­duced into the Bosch prod­uct range of­fer in 1927 to meet the in­creas­ing de­mand on per­for­mance and safety in brak­ing sys­tems in ve­hi­cles.

Over the years Bosch has worked con­tin­u­ously to im­prove the qual­ity and re­li­a­bil­ity of its brak­ing range to the mar­ket. In 1978, Bosch re­leased its ground-break­ing tech­nol­ogy in the Anti-lock Brak­ing Sys­tem (more com­monly known as ABS), which be­came the ori­gin for all mod­ern brak­ing con­trol sys­tems.

With 30 de­vel­op­ment fa­cil­i­ties man­ag­ing re­search and de­vel­op­ment, 19 pro­duc­tion fa­cil­i­ties, 140 plants, and 280 sup­pli­ers across the globe, and a few test tracks around the world, Bosch is com­mit­ted to sat­is­fy­ing the strin­gent qual­ity re­quire­ments to­wards ma­te­rial and pro­duc­tion of brak­ing prod­ucts.

Bosch’s af­ter­mar­ket range for brake re­pairs now con­tains 26 prod­uct lines with more than 10,000 part num­bers. The Bosch brake range of­fer cov­ers prod­ucts from hy­draulic brake com­po­nents such as mas­ter cylin­ders, wheel brake cylin­ders, to brake cal­lipers, brake pads, drums, disc ro­tors and brake hoses. It also in­cludes Bosch brake fluid and other work­shop con­sum­ables.

With sev­eral ac­qui­si­tions of var­i­ous brak­ing com­pa­nies around the globe, Bosch has added to its ex­per­tise in the area of brak­ing com­po­nents. Within some of its specialist lo­ca­tions for brake pads and brake shoe in the Asia-Pa­cific re­gion, Bosch now has its own re­search, de­vel­op­ment and pro­duc­tion ca­pa­bil­ity, di­rectly in­te­grated into the Bosch Au­to­mo­tive Af­ter­mar­ket busi­ness di­vi­sion.

Re­cently, Bosch made a sub­stan­tial in­vest­ment to a ded­i­cated brake disc test­ing lab in China. The new lab is run by eight Bosch en­gi­neers and will test all Bosch au­to­mo­tive af­ter­mar­ket brake discs.

The scope of test­ing in­cludes qual­ity con­trol points, fo­cus­ing on di­men­sional checks to en­sure pre­ci­sion in fit­ment, as well as ma­te­rial anal­y­sis to en­sure re­duce noise, de­pend­able per­for­mance and longer life.

Bosch prod­ucts and tech­nol­ogy, sup­plied through a global net­work of fac­to­ries, can be found in many makes of car cur­rently pro­duced around the world. This strong link to Orig­i­nal Equip­ment de­vel­op­ment and in­no­va­tion means Bosch is able to deliver a su­pe­rior af­ter­mar­ket of­fer­ing to its cus­tomers.

You can find Bosch brake parts at many au­to­mo­tive parts dis­trib­u­tors and re­tail­ers. For more in­for­ma­tion on Bosch brake parts, please call Bosch on 1300 30 70 40 or visit www.boschau­toparts.com.au
