International Trucks Parked in Parking LotInternational Truck said Thursday the company will make Bendix ADB22X air disc brakes standard on all axles of 6Ă—4, 6Ă—2, and 4Ă—2 LT Series trucks.

International Trucks Senior Vice President of Global Product Development Denny Mooney says the disc brakes help the company with its increased uptime initiative while also providing a higher degree of safety for the driver.

The Bendix ADB22X air disc brake from Bendix Spicer Foundation Brake LLC (BSFB) features a patented lightweight design that significantly reduces stopping distance and extends brake system life. Complementing the straight, stable stops that air disc brakes provide is greater reliability, thanks to a design that nearly eliminates brake fade and degradation of stopping power. In addition, total cost of ownership can be reduced by installing durable, long-lasting air disc brakes which generally allow for significantly shorter pad change times than traditional drums.
