Haldex Commercial Vehicle Systems announced that its ModulX DB22LT is now the preferred disc brake option offered on IMT axles. ModulX has been available on IMT rigid axles since March 2008, and now also is released on IMT self-steer axles.

IMT is a manufacturer and supplier to the truck-trailer, OEM and defense industries. The Haldex ModulX Air Disc Brake slides on four stainless steel slide pins, providing a more compact, stable design than the standard two-pin design. The stainless-steel pins help increase corrosion resistance and require no lubrication. Two tappets equally distribute brake pad clamping force to facilitate even wear, resulting in longer service life and lower maintenance costs.

DB22LT is an optimized disc brake design engineered specifically for common heavy-duty applications and to outperform standard S-cam drum brakes. ModulX is less sensitive to speed and temperature variations common in any extreme demanding grade or braking application, Haldex says.
