Economy and safety are the highest priorities when transporting freight. Demanding and varied topography, dense traffic, cost and time pressure stretch drivers and vehicles to their limits. It is not only the engine, but also the braking system that plays a key role in this context.
The intarder, which is integrated into the transmission, is the modern answer to these challenges: It allows for wear-free braking without fading, relieves the service brakes by up to 90 percent, and in doing so, reduces maintenance costs and brake dust emissions. This makes the intarder the first choice - not only in long-distance traffic, but also wherever heavy loads have to be moved safely and economically.
The intarder considerably extends the service life of the service brakes and thus, cuts costs for wearing components such as brake disks and brake linings. Service times and downtimes are significantly reduced.
Practical experience has shown that the additional investment costs are amortized after a short period.
