Cooperation with Haldex
The SKF Group and the Haldex Group have announced plans to jointly develop an advanced wheel end system for commercial vehicles, trucks, buses and trailers. The system will be based on Haldex’ new generation of disc brakes with its Fixed Calliper Dual Disc concept and SKF’s truck hub bearing and sealing technology.
The integration of Haldex’ new high-performance dual-disc brake system into SKF’s proven hub-unit technology is expected to create a much more compact and efficient product and has the potential to greatly improve safety and performance and to optimize vehicle design. It will also give vehicle builders the ability to optimize installation space requirements.
