In the light of growing demand amongst end consumers for repairs appropriate to the market value of their vehicles, garages and drivers are increasingly looking to reconditioned parts such as our brake calipers as attractive alternatives. This growing interest in remanufactured parts can be explained by such factors as a larger proportion of older vehicles and their longer overall useful life. Beyond this, "green" concerns are playing an increasingly significant role as reconditioned exchange parts can save valuable resources and help to protect the environment.
When it comes to product safety, however, no expenses are saved. Regardless of whether it’s a new or reconditioned part, safety standards are uniformly high and demanding.
The reconditioning process is therefore subject to precisely defined procedures and standards. For example, all safety-related components and rubber parts are fully replaced. The remaining components are all reworked. This means that a replacement brake caliper from Hella Pagid meets the highest safety and quality requirements.
You can find more information about our remanufactured brake calipers in our brochure, Return Guidelines for Remanufactured Brake Calipers. Please note that these return guidelines only apply within Europe.
Key function for the EPB brake caliper
Important elements of the electronically controlled system are the EPB switch, an electronic control unit and the EPB brake caliper.
The latter also serves as the base element of the EPB as this brake caliper features an additional electric motor that actuates the electronic parking brake by excerpting pressure on the piston by way of a gear, which in turn excerpts pressure on the brake linings and disks. The parking brake is therefore integrated in a space-saving manner directly in the EPB brake caliper.
