Quality manufacturing is central at UniBond. All our shoes are manufactured in compliance with ISO 9001 quality standards, using the Advanced Quality Planning and PPAP processes established by automotive and heavy duty OEMs including Ford, General Motors and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles.
Critical dimensional controls such as shoe radius are monitored and controlled to ensure that UniBond shoes provide uniform and balanced braking performance. Computerized gauges precisely measure individual brake shoe radius. Controls on the shoe radius form prevent hot spots which can shorten friction and drum life.
Heat treatment of shoe anchor and cam slots prevent “mushrooming” of these critical interface points.
UniBond’s products are free of Conflict Materials. For more detail, see our Conflict Materials Compliance Certification.
