TORRANCE, Calif., – November 7, 2023 – ADVICS, the leader in advanced braking technology, is expanding its brake system product offerings by adding new EPB actuator kits, which attach to the vehicle’s caliper and automatically engage the parking brake.
Electric parking brakes (EPB) are extremely common among new cars today. While conventional parking brakes require some physical force for engaging and disengaging, electric ones only need the driver to push a button to engage before exiting the vehicle or disengage before driving away. The brake force in an EPB is being generated by a DC motor called actuator or motor gear unit (MGU) and sometimes it may fail resulting in costly repairs.
These new aftermarket EPB actuator kits are current OE production parts, manufactured in Japan. Installation hardware is included in the kits, providing the bolts and O-ring seals the technician needs to complete the replacement.
“We’re always glad to announce new aftermarket brake parts, expanding coverage for our customers,” said Larrow Kaufman, senior manager for sales and marketing, AISIN Aftermarket North America. “This announcement is even more monumental due to the significant number of VIO coverage offered.”
The expansion includes two new part numbers (ACR001, ACR002), providing coverage for over eight million VIO.
This new product announcement is one of several presented by the AISIN and ADVICS brands at the 2023 Automotive Aftermarket Parts Expo (AAPEX) in Las Vegas, Oct. 31 – Nov. 2, at booth #A4657.
All ADVICS aftermarket products are sold through AISIN World Corp. of America, located in Torrance, California. All new SKUs from this product line expansion are in stock and ready to ship to AISIN customers.
