Brake callipers are available in an extremely wide variety of different designs. Whether they have just one or several hydraulically operated pistons or are made of cast iron or aluminium, their task is always the same, namely that when operated, the brake pads are pressed by a piston onto the brake disc, thereby reducing the speed of the vehicle. Kinetic energy is converted into thermal energy. Due to their importance as a safety-related component, particular attention is paid to quality and process reliability in the manufacture of brake callipers.
