Title: BRAKE PAD CARRIER, ESPECIALLY FOR DISK BRAKES ON COMMERCIAL VEHICLES
Abstract:
A brake pad carrier, especially for disk brakes on commercial vehicles, is formed by joining two individual metal sheets (1, 3) in such a way that the carrier's flexural strength is greater than the sum of the individual strengths of the individual metal sheets (1, 3). Also, the support surfaces of the individual metal sheets (1, 3) form an aggregate surface that has a percentage contact area that is greater than that of an individual sheet-metal carrier.
