WABCO Holdings Inc has entered into a long-term supply agreement with Daimler Trucks North America (DTNA). WABCO will supply its MAXXUS air disc brake technology for series production on DTNA’s trucks starting in July 2012.
MAXXUS technology represents a light, high-performing single-piston air disc brake for North America’s commercial vehicle industry. Compactly designed, it reduces a vehicle’s overall weight, which boosts fuel efficiency and enables increased transport payload.
MAXXUS air disc brakes are based on WABCO’s MAXX22 single-piston technology the company pioneered in Europe. MAXX22 brakes have been adopted by major globally operating makers of commercial trucks and buses.
