What is it that we can’t put the brakes on? Our capacity for innovation.
Dr. Norbert Partmann, Manager KTR Brake Systems GmbH
What’s more to ensure that our brakes are even more effective in the future, in 2014 we set up KTR Brake Systems GmbH and opened the KTR Competence Center for Brake Systems in Schloss Holte-Stukenbrock, Germany. In addition to brake component development and design, the Center also performs extensive functional tests on the KTR-STOP® and EMB-STOP model ranges. For instance, in a special low-temperature environmental chamber which allows tests in environmental temperatures down to –50°C to be carried out.
Anything which moves must also be able to brake. In line with this slogan, we first revolutionised the hydraulic brake and then tripled the power spectrum of electromechanical brakes. With the hydraulic KTR-STOP® and the electromechanical EMB-STOP, KTR is one of only a handful of manufacturers worldwide to offer its clients two different braking systems.
