  • Publication number: 20200256413
    Abstract: The invention relates to a cold-formed steel brake piston 1 for a motor vehicle partial-pad disc brake brake pad with a thin-walled structure as a cup open at one end and comprising a base 2 and a wall 3 with a radially outwardly impressed groove 6 in the wall 3 and with a radially inwardly impressed wall projection 7. The invention has the object of providing a further improved stable steel brake piston construction with an improved interface which can be used flexibly and cost-effectively for both large-bore and small-bore steel brake pistons 1. This object is accomplished by making the wall 3 with at least one groove 14 and at least one land 15 at a distance from wall projection 7 profiled in such a way that wall 3 has wall surface areas of varying thickness which are spaced apart from each other in the circumferential direction with a spacing V.

  • Publication number: 20200182319
    Abstract: The invention relates to a brake piston 1 for a brake caliper 9 of a disk brake, which is produced using working processes from a metallic material, in particular from a flat metal sheet, and is formed in one piece as a unilaterally open pot with a piston longitudinal axis A, with a piston wall 2 and with a piston head 3. There is a need for robust and light as well as alternatively constructed, efficiently producible and well guided brake pistons. The object is achieved firstly in principle on the basis of a cup-shapedly worked brake piston blank 19, in that at least one locally defined, i.e. partially cold-upset or partially ironed, cylindrical piston wall portion is present with a partially deformed piston wall 2 which is configured in adaptively modified manner by plastic material deformation by means of material redistribution (flow) including strain-hardening of its piston wall thickness of s1?x.

  • Patent number: 10448500
    Abstract: An HF combiner includes a housing having a common terminal and n signal line terminals. The n signal line terminals are coupled to the common terminal within the housing via one of n filter paths in each case. A circuit board arrangement is used for outcoupling and separately transmitting low-frequency signals, and includes a common terminal contact and n signal line terminal contacts. Each of the n signal line terminal contacts is electrically connected or connectable to the common terminal contact via one of n bypass lines in each case. For this purpose, a control device controls n signal line switching devices. When an AISG signal is detected at one of the n signal line terminal contacts, the control device is designed to electrically connect the particular one of the n signal line terminal contacts, at which the AISG signal has been detected, to the common terminal contact.
