The brake caliper, also called a brake calliper, is a component of the disc brake system. Its task is essentially to convert the hydraulic pressure in the braking system into a mechanical force.
The brake calipers are located in the area of the wheels – on the left and right of the front axle respectively. Vehicles that are also equipped with disc brakes on the rear axle also have brake calipers here. Brake calipers are mainly equipped with one or two pistons.
In powerful or very heavy vehicles, up to five pistons can be installed per brake caliper. In rare cases, there are designs that use two complete calipers per wheel.
In addition to the service brake, which is required for braking a rolling vehicle, the brake caliper can also perform the function of the parking brake. This has the task of securing a stationary vehicle against rolling away.
