Daniel Triolo, Lead Key Account Manager at Datwyler, looks at brake-by-wire technology, its composition, and the many benefits it can deliver to the mobility sector and its customers.
O-rings: the system-critial sealing solution with high performance
On the surface, an elastomer O-ring may appear straightforward in terms of design and development, but there are far more processes involved than simply injecting rubber into a mold. Our expert Richard Katona explains how advanced materials development and simulation expertise can mean the difference between a good seal and an excellent one.
Sometimes technology is seemingly ahead of its time – like the electrohydraulic brake booster (EHB), which is over two decades old. EHB is coming into its own with the introduction of electric vehicles and changes under the hood of vehicles driven by conventional power trains. This has put the spotlight on the safety-critical elastomer components that go into braking systems, such as those produced by Datwyler.
