According to ZF, its second generation integrated braking control system IBC has cut its body weight by over 20% compared with its predecessor and performs impressively in recycling braking power. ZF electronic parking braking caliper EPB also adopts light-weight materials and thus effectively reduces the energy consumption.
In addition, ZF passive safety system has successfully cut its weight by optimizing its modular design. Its independently developed fabric casing, which replaces metal casing, enables its knee airbag (KAB) to lose its weight by 30%.
By introducing composite plastic stabilizing rod, plastic stabilizing rod, three-point aluminum control arm, ZF has help vehicle’s chassis further cut its weight.
