Optimizing gears for electric brake actuators
As connected car technology continues to evolve, automotive OEMs are replacing vacuum and hydraulic brakes with electric braking systems. These systems improve fuel economy, enable a smoother driving experience, and can stop vehicles faster to prevent collisions. Electric brakes require several gear-driven actuators to maximize system efficiency and reliability. Since electric brake designs are highly compact, OEMs require actuator gears that are increasingly thin and extremely durable.
