Full System Analysis Capabilities

Engaging customers to solve system problems and produce innovations

While Akebono’s core expertise focuses on brake friction materials and components, rather than full brake systems, we possess the ability to work at a system level to help customers solve a variety of noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) issues. This includes system architecture, configuration, troubleshooting and testing. Our customers regularly engage us in such systems-analysis activities to help them produce the best vehicles on the road today and we continually exceed their expectations.

Akebono engineers study and analyze every facet of the friction and vibration characteristics, including dynamic resistance, pressure distribution, thermal and modal traits and running mode characteristics. This work produces frequent product advancements, manufacturing improvements and enhanced quality for Akebono’s OEM customers. We meet or exceed all brake performance standards, from government mandates to OEM customer requirements, ultimately meeting the needs of drivers.

Ideally, our engineers become involved in product development as early as possible. This enables OEMs to maximize the total value of their relationship with Akebono. Customers leverage our expertise in brake systems to provide lower-cost customized solutions, improve vehicle fit during installation, lower warranty costs and optimize brake performance.
