Meritor Wabco Vehicle Control Systems, the joint venture between ArvinMeritor and Wabco, has added air disc brakes from both partner companies to its product portfolio.

The first addition is Wabco's new generation air disc brake, designed with the single-piston technology found in the company's PAN brakes.

Offered for 17- and 19-in. wheels, the brake has a “new caliper with pad offset, in combination with the unique single piston clamping unit and anti-taper wear mechanism,” according to Meritor Wabco.

It also incorporates PAN features such as increased pad thickness, optimized pad utilization and serviceability.

The joint venture will also offer the Meritor EX225 air disc brake family. Designed especially for severe-service applications, the EX225 has “high torque capability and superior pad volume and swept area,” according to Meritor Wabco.
