ADVICS, renowned for its brake system products, has unveiled its latest line of electric parking brake (EPB) actuator kits in North America. These kits are designed to latch onto a vehicle’s caliper, simplifying the process of engaging the parking brake.
Why It Matters
Electric parking brakes have become the standard for modern vehicles, allowing drivers to engage and disengage their parking brakes with a mere push of a button. The convenience and efficiency of EPBs have surpassed traditional parking brakes, which required physical exertion to use. An essential component of the EPB system is the actuator or motor gear unit (MGU), a DC motor responsible for generating the brake force. A malfunctioning actuator can lead to expensive repairs. With ADVICS’s new product line, users are presented with high-quality aftermarket solutions, manufactured in Japan and complete with all necessary installation hardware.
- ADVICS’s new EPB actuator kits are poised to serve over eight million vehicles in operation (VIO) across North America.
- These kits are compatible with various Toyota and Lexus models from 2018-2023.
- Each kit is comprehensive, including an actuator, bolts, and O-ring seals.
- Distribution is facilitated through AISIN warehouses.
- Two specific part numbers for the product line are ACR001 and ACR002.
Larrow Kaufman, Senior Manager for Sales and Marketing, Aftermarket North America for AISIN, expressed the company’s excitement over this expansion. The significance of the launch is highlighted by the vast VIO coverage potential it brings. This innovative product launch is one of several announcements by both AISIN and ADVICS at the 2023 AAPEX Show in Las Vegas, where they will be presenting from October 31st to November 2nd at booth #A4657.
