Knorr-Bremse AG is a global leader in manufacturing and supplying braking systems and other safety-critical systems for the rail and commercial vehicle industries. The company specializes in developing, producing, and distributing braking systems and various other systems and components related to vehicle control and guidance. Knorr-Bremse AG adopted the strategies of new product development, partnership, and acquisition to retain its leading position in the air brake system market. In August 2018, Knorr-Bremse introduced 2 new disc brakes—“SYNACT and NEXTT”—for future generations of heavy-duty commercial vehicles. Compared to its predecessor, SYNACT offers new dimensions of performance and weight. Further, Knorr-Bremse also completed the acquisition of the IPR for the development and production of friction materials for rail vehicles and industrial applications from Federal-Mogul.
Meritor, Inc. was established in 1997 after the spun-off by Rockwell International. The company is headquartered in Michigan, US Meritor and focuses on providing drivetrain, mobility, and braking solutions for commercial vehicles. Meritor offers various products, including axles, brakes, drivelines, and suspension systems. Alternatively, Meritor adopted supply contracts, new product developments, and expansion strategies to sustain its market position. In March 2018, Meritor received a supply contract from Daimler Trucks North America (DTNA) to provide EX+L air disc brakes. These EX+L air disc brakes will be a standard on all wheel positions for DTNA’s new Freightliner Cascadia model to further enhance safety and performance. In January 2020, Meritor, Inc. announced its aftermarket air disc brake (ADB) rotors for all models of linehaul, refuse, vocational, coach and trailer applications. This rotor was designed with high-quality cast iron for low peak temperatures during the brake operation. The cooling vanes that were offered in this product were similar to the Meritor Genuine first-fit rotors specified for OE use.
