Brake system for any vehicle plays an important role, as safety comes at highest level, also domestic and international safety norms for commercial vehicles are getting stringent. In current scenario of highly competitive commercial market, Payload advantage comes at peak level in customer demand list, also maintainability plays an important role to make sure least vehicle downtime, linked to customer profitability. Finally, if product has less complexity (reducing no. of parts), then it will provide add on benefit to any organization. Considering these customer oriented perspectives, mainly payload & maintenance, along with regulation compliance. We have proposed new Disc brake system for heavy duty commercial vehicle providing maximum payload benefit, along with enhancement in maintainability. It has also enhanced performance and meeting all legislative criteria at vehicle level.
