The latest additions to Knorr-Bremse’s Genuine Remanufactured Program are calipers for SN6 and SK7 trailer disc brakes.
“The market is ripe for this step. The pressure to cut costs in the transport sector is immense. As a manufacturer of original equipment and genuine parts we are out to do more than just offer our customers cost-effective top quality for their new vehicles,” said Wolfgang Krinner, Member of the Management Board of Knorr-Bremse Systeme für Nutzfahrzeuge GmbH. “We also aspire to offer them a low cost, safe alternative for their trucks and trailers that have already racked up high mileage.”
According to Knorr-Bremse, the brake caliper is one of the components in a commercial vehicle that is subjected to extreme forces and must be able to withstand such forces at all times, especially throughout its second life cycle as well.
“This is where our expertise as an original equipment parts manufacturer really counts,” Krinner said. “We are familiar with the precise technical requirements for each individual part – which means we can test them very rigorously indeed. This way we ensure premium quality for second-life products.”
Dr. Daniel Köhler of Knorr-Bremse added, “In our tests we check more than 130 variables before we release the components for sale. That means we offer precisely the OE quality that is rightly expected of us.”
