HANNING & KAHL brake discs are designed with braking specifications and brake strengths in line with the requirements for urban transport vehicles. Brake discs are exposed to extremely high mechanical and thermic strain.
Customised to the respective bogie/chassis designs and drive concepts, we offer a wide range of brake discs. Brake discs are primarily made from grey cast iron, nodular cast iron or cast from suitable steel alloys, and then machined.
