Hendrickson Trailer Commercial Vehicle Systems debuted its air disc brake wear indicator tool at the Heavy Duty Aftermarket Week event in Las Vegas.

The tool allows maintenance personnel to check brake pad and rotor thickness without removing the wheel or the brake pads from the caliper.

“Regularly inspecting the thickness of your brake pads and rotors is important for maximizing the performance and life of your air disc brake system,” said Greg Dvorchak, applications engineer for Hendrickson’s wheel-end and braking systems business unit.  “Our new tool makes this crucial maintenance practice convenient, easy and quick.”
