Solve Your Braking Systems and Pneumatic Control Challenges

  • Modern rear axle integrating electric motor, cooling electronics, and brake systems
  • Apply Smart Packaging and Serviceability

    Create robust and innovative designs for constrained spaces, transportation designers and engineers need to balance addressing dimensional challenges with satisfying manufacturing and maintenance requirements.

    The precise dimensional control of our additive manufacturing technologies help your engineers overcome the challenging requirements of innovative braking and pneumatic components. Design freedom paired with our wide materials portfolio enables them to optimize packaging geometries and ensure efficient serviceability.

  • Pre-assembled valves and pressure regulators made of many components
  • Eliminate Failures, Improve Assembly and Service

    Advance quality while reducing product cost, storage needs, and potential supply delays by consolidating components and lowering total part numbers.

    The experts in our Application Innovation Group can help you identify opportunities to reduce part count, improve assembly processes, and improve quality and reliability -- even across large ranges of pneumatic configurations.
