ZF’s Commercial Vehicle Control Systems Division recently announced that Navistar has selected Wabco Maxxus L2.0 air disc brakes as available equipment for International LT and RH series.
The new Wabco Maxxus air disc brake range has more than 6.5 million miles of real-world testing and weigh approximately 67 pounds, reducing an International LT or RH Series truck approximately 80 pounds lighter.
“ZF, like Navistar, is intensely focused on offering reliable and innovative technologies that help increase vehicle safety, performance, customer uptime and ROI,” said Julien Plenchette, sales business leader, commercial vehicle control systems division at ZF.
The advanced adjuster mechanism was designed to continuously maintain optimal running clearance between the brake pads and rotor even under extreme conditions, reducing the risk of hot runners. Maxxus L2.0 air disc brakes also feature an advanced taper wear mitigation system, with an offset integrated pressure plate and larger piston that is designed to provide consistent, precise pressure across the full pad face, ensuring more even pad wear.
