What can MAXX 2.0 provide?

MAXX 2.0 the latest generation of single-piston ADB has been developed based on more than 20 years of engineering and manufacturing expertise. The new design offers up to 40% fewer parts which reduces complexity and can lead to faster, easier maintenance. With less weight and low drag-torque design, it also increases fuel efficiency and payload. The unique adjuster mechanism quickly adapts running clearance during both brake application and brake release to help ensure optimal brake performance.


Customer Benefits
