BASE picks Alcon as braking system partner

19th August 2020 - 09:05 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


UK-based Alcon Components has been selected by Turkish drivetrain manufacturer BASE as its preferred supplier of specialist vehicle braking systems.

Under this partnership, Alcon will provide BASE with bespoke solutions to meet the requirements of specialist axles for use in harsh environments such as defence.

The partnership will also work on hybrid and all-electric vehicle installations.

BASE and Alcon already cooperate on various defence vehicle projects, but the latter noted in a 19 August statement that the new arrangement will ensure the braking performance and technical parameters of the axle system are met with an integrated and fully compliant braking solution.

Alcon braking systems are used or are being assessed by more than 20 military vehicle OEMs, such as BAE, Jankel, Patria, Ricardo and Supacat. 

Jonathan Edwards, group sales director at Alcon, said the company is ‘working at the forefront of the technology envelope, delivering some innovative solutions to enhance the performance of the vehicle systems, through the development phase on onwards towards production’.
