Hendrickson Trailer Commercial Vehicle Systems debuts its new air disc brake (ADB) wear indicator tool at Heavy Duty Aftermarket Week in Las Vegas. 

This patent-pending tool allows maintenance personnel to check brake pad and rotor thickness without removing the wheel or the brake pads from the caliper.  

“Regularly inspecting the thickness of your brake pads and rotors is important for maximizing the performance and life of your air disc brake system,” says Greg Dvorchak, applications engineer for Hendrickson’s wheel-end and braking systems business unit.  “Our new tool makes this crucial maintenance practice convenient, easy and quick.”   

Hendrickson will conduct brief demonstrations in Booth No. 321 at Heavy Duty Aftermarket Week to educate attendees on how to use the new ADB wear indicator tool.

Air disc brake maintenance training is available through Hendrickson’s online education portal at www.Hendrickson-Academy.com.  For additional information on maintenance intervals and Hendrickson’s recommended inspection cycles, visit www.maxx22t.com
