A commitment to braking
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.
