DBA PRODUCT FAMILY CONTINUES TO GROW
DBA is expanding its comprehensive program of brake Master- and Wheel Cylinders with a new addition to its range of brake product lines
Having enjoyed tremendous success with its new range of Street Series brake pads since its market introduction in 2021, Disc Brakes Australia (DBA) says it is excited to announce the expansion of the Street Series family of products into the hydraulic space.
With a continuously increasing number of SKUs of brake calipers forming the base of the new hydraulics program, DBA is about to grow its offering even further by adding a comprehensive range of brake Master- and Wheel Cylinders.
“We’re on track to becoming the number one brake solution supplier to the ANZ market, with our product range now comprising of the most complete market coverage for brake rotors/drums and friction products, and with hydraulic components catching up quickly,” Disc Brakes Australia Head of Product, Innovation and R&D, Brian Johns, said.
“However, we’re not going to stop locally. With our export business becoming an increasingly important and fast-growing part of our business, the range will cover many applications found in markets around the globe.”
Available to the market from July will be a range of over 900 SKUs. By the third quarter of 2022 this is expected to grow to over 1,200 SKUs, offering an estimated market coverage of up to two thirds of the Australian car park, thus supporting DBA’s market leading position for its rotor and friction lines.
All hydraulic products are easily identifiable by displaying the letters ‘dba’ on the cylinder body. Importantly, like all DBA parts, the new range has been meticulously catalogued on DBA’s online ‘Part Finder’ catalogue, accessible via their website dba.com.au This includes a unique database of competitor-to-DBA cross-references to facilitate part identification.
Technically, DBA says like with all its products, it makes no compromises when it comes to quality and durability of the new range. The hydraulic parts are manufactured to the highest available quality standards, conforming to TS 16949, the internationally recognised Quality Management System specification for the automotive industry.
Full traceability is integral to the success of the manufacturing process and ensures complete compliance at all stages of manufacturing from raw materials to the finished goods. As such, Disc Brakes Australia explains that as a business it is compliant to ISO 9001, guaranteeing all processes are continuously monitored.
As part of its quality assurance process, DBA scans all OE products as a reference. All DBA sub-components and sub-assemblies are likewise measured and inspected at each stage to ensure the product is equal to or exceeds any OE specifications. Particularly, all plastic components and reservoirs are 1:1 re-engineered to OE specs to be impervious to the required fluids.
Prior to sign-off and shipping at completion of production, randomly selected parts are both performance-tested and environmentally tested. DBA says it ensures all parts go through a full durability test regime inclusive of ambient and high/low temp testing. Internal checks are carried out for bore roundness, roughness and hardness. All reservoirs are pressure tested, as well as all springs and seals for completeness.
Each product is also sealed prior to boxing, ensuring the product is free from particulate matter for direct use at the workshop straight from the box.
All hydraulic components are covered by DBA’s product warranty of 12 months or 20,000km.
