Q: How to determine the brake model and brake disc size?
1) First of all, brake disc size is determined by rim size
2) Further more, with data of original brake disc size, total area of pistons and brake pads, size of original brake disc, put all together we're able to estimate a proper model for your vehicle
Q: What is floating disc system and its supremacy?
Alcon's floating disc system has been designed to allow thermal expansion of the disc throughout its life while minimising the tendency to judder.
Q: Difference between one-piece casting and split forging, their respective advantages?
Casting is a manufacturing process in which a liquid material is usually poured into a mold, which contains a hollow cavity of the desired shape, and then allowed to solidify.
Forging is a manufacturing process involving the shaping of metal using localized compressive forces.
Casting is most often used for making complex shapes that would be otherwise difficult or uneconomical to make by other methods. Forging can produce a piece that is stronger than an equivalent cast or machined part. As the metal is shaped during the forging process, its internal grain texture deforms to follow the general shape of the part. As a result, the texture variation is continuous throughout the part, giving rise to a piece with improved strength characteristics. Additionally, forgings can achieve a lower total cost than casting or fabrication.
One-piece disc is a disc cast in one piece with its hat or bell. This is the inexpensive way to manufacture a disc and is perfectly adequate for normal use. There are some tricks to the design to reduce distortion.
Q: How do lightweight brake kit improve car performance in good way?
Lighter brake forces come with lighter car weights.
Q: What is brake disc surface texture and how to choose it for performance?
The surface texture of a brake disc in some cases affects the braking effectiveness of a vehicle.
Taking ALCON products for example, C shape brake disc surface texture is for road cars, S shape brake d
