WABCO Holdings announced a long-term supply agreement with Daimler Trucks North America to supply its Maxxus air disc brake technology for series production on DTNA’s trucks starting in July.

Maxxus technology is a lightweight single-piston air disc brake designed for the North American commercial vehicle industry. Maxxus is designed to reduce the vehicle’s overall weight, which boosts fuel efficiency and enables increased transport payload. Maxxus air disc brakes are based on the company’s Maxx22 single-piston technology that the company pioneered in Europe.

“We are proud to supply Daimler Trucks North America with WABCO’s Maxxus air disc brakes, a new game-changing generation of high-performance low-weight braking technology that increases vehicle safety and efficiency,” said Nikhil Varty, WABCO president, Americas. “Maxxus is yet another mark of WABCO’s technology leadership as we further demonstrate our commitment to North America’s commercial vehicle industry.”
