Bosch Expands QuietCast Disc Brake Rotor Line

The company adds 215 new part numbers, extending coverage to 95 percent.

 

LAS VEGAS, Nev. – Bosch has announced the expansion of its line of premium QuietCast brake rotors. Bosch estimates that the addition of 215 new part numbers will increase coverage to 95 percent of all vehicles in operation (VIO) and includes many late-model applications. Currently, one out of every three vehicles on the road in North America – Domestic, Asian and European – use Bosch braking components, according to the company.

“Our QuietCast Brake Rotors are manufactured using a heat flow casting process that produces superior high carbon, vehicle-specific castings which ensure a smooth ride and quiet braking,” said David Terry, senior product manager for friction and rotors, Bosch Automotive Aftermarket Brake Components North America. “Bosch castings provide superior heat dissipation and noise dampening ability, consistent performance and longer life – characteristics not found in low-cost products from some competitors.”

To ensure the highest quality and performance, Bosch QuietCast Brake Rotors are subjected to rigorous and stringent standardized Bosch testing and validation, the company added. These new rotors are included in the 2014 Bosch Braking Components Catalog and printed copies are available now.

“QuietCast Brake Rotors come with an added bonus – OEM brand recognition,” said Terry. “Having introduced such groundbreaking technologies as antilock brakes and electronic stability control systems, Bosch has a worldwide industry reputation as a top-notch OEM brake supplier with extensive braking expertise, and technicians are confident that Bosch QuietCast Premium Brake Rotors continue to tailor OE braking technology to the needs of the aftermarket.”

Now LED lights are everywhere, and we’re all familiar with them, even in our homes, but the automotive industry has reaped the benefits as much as, if not more than, any other industry. Just like a diode, LEDs allow current flow in only one direction. When current, or electron flow occurs, photons are released.
