Carboteq

High precision wear indication of carbon ceramic brake discs

Using our expertise and a close collaboration with BSCCB (Brembo SGL Carbon Ceramic Brakes), Proceq was able to design Carboteq – a unique and patented instrument to accurately measure brake disc wear. Carboteq is based on pulse-induction technology using a specific arrangement of inductive coils and advanced signal analysis to compensate for influences of material characteristics and brake disc geometries. The alignment laser ensures the Carboteq instrument is always placed exactly at the right spot to read the pre-engraved Carboteq value on the brake discs. Each Carboteq is extensively tested in Switzerland and certified by official certification bodies and is thereby conforming to highest quality and automobile standards.

Carboteq makes brake disc inspection easy, intuitive and effortless

The increasing global adoption of carbon ceramic brake discs in high performance and prestige vehicles can be attributed to their significant benefits: lightweight, superior performance and positive environmental impact. Carbon ceramic brake discs are extremely durable under normal conditions, however ambitious driving can dramatically shorten their lifetime. Checking the wear of carbon ceramic brake discs is laborious, time consuming and entirely different from methods used for traditional brake discs monitoring. These challenges were solved by Carboteq.
