The reduction of weight presented a crucial target. The improved weight of Gen 6 has benefited from two drivers: Firstly, reduction of components. Secondly, previous generations of the EPB featured metal gears in the planetary gearbox and the connection to the motor pinion. For the latter OECHSLER was able to substitute metal with high-performance polymers, which are lighter and more cost-efficient. OECHSLER has always been a powerhouse in injection molding, including material and process development. In the case of our sixth generation EPB experience was essential to meet weight targets.
