Brake Pad Pressure Distribution with the I-Scan® System

Difference in pressure pattern of inboard (piston side) and outboard (finger side) of brake pad showing flexing of both pads.

Measurement Types:

–Brake design research and assessment–Identify and predict:

  • Wear patterns and causes
  • Pressure non-uniformities
  • Contact timing problems
  • Stiffness
  • Competitive benchmarking

–Design comparison testing

–Predictive testing

–Design validation

–Noise, vibration, and harshness testing


–Validate FEA models

–Reduce testing time

–Reduce need for roadway testing

–Save time and money
