Title: BRAKE CALIPERS
Abstract:
A brake caliper (100) with first and second parts (104a, 104b) between which is received a pair of braking members (102a, 102b). The caliper (100) includes a service brake mechanism having at least two piston and cylinder assemblies (108a, 110a and 108b, 110b) forming an opposed piston mechanism for forcing each of the braking members (102a, 102b) towards a brake disc to apply a service braking force thereto. The caliper (100) also includes a park brake mechanism including an actuator mechanism (112) for applying a driving force to a first opposed braking member (102a) towards the brake disc and a force transmitting member (116) for transmitting the driving force to a second opposed braking member (102b). The force transmitting member (116) is supported by a sliding connection between the force transmitting member (116) and an outer surface of a first cylinder (110a) and a slidable connection between the force transmitting member (116) and a connecting member that spans the first and second parts of the brake caliper (100).
