Grinding of coated brake discs already successfully in use

The automotive industry is facing significant change, driven by constant innovation and stricter environmental regulations. In this dynamic environment, Supfina has taken on a key role.

With the introduction of the Supfina Planet BD, a specialized system for grinding hard-coated brake discs, the company is setting new standards in precision and efficiency. The Supfina Planet BD is already being used successfully and is highly valued by renowned customers.

The need for such an innovation was reinforced by the introduction of the Euro 7 emissions standard. Hard-coated brake discs, which make a significant contribution to reducing particulate emissions and at the same time provide the necessary corrosion protection for electric vehicles, became the focus of attention. Supfina responded to this challenge by developing an economical solution for the double surface grinding of brake discs in collaboration with brake disc manufacturers and coaters. This solution takes the entire process chain into account and precisely coordinates the grinding process with previous work steps.

The Supfina Planet BD has a patent-pending, force-neutral grinding process that enables a significant improvement in shape and position tolerances. This method not only optimizes tool life, but also significantly reduces unit costs. In addition, the mineral cast machine bed contributes to the high precision by providing excellent thermal stability, vibration damping and chemical resistance to cooling lubricants.

The Planet BD is characterized by its specific adaptability to the grinding of coated brake discs. Its extreme rigidity and vibration damping enable short cycle times and ensure economical tool wear with maximum precision and accuracy. In addition, loading and unloading can be automated for different infeed and outfeed systems, which enables smooth integration into different manufacturing processes and leads to further cost savings.

In conclusion, the Supfina Planet BD is a pioneering solution that has already achieved a high market response.

The machine combines technological innovation with a precise design to meet today's demands in brake technology. Its ability to improve both performance and sustainability makes it a relevant contribution in a rapidly evolving sector. This suggests that the Supfina Planet BD not only offers an answer to current challenges, but also has the potential to influence standards in the future of brake system manufacturing.
