Looking Back At EuroBrake 2024

Eurac Poole were delighted to attend this year’s EuroBrake conference held in Mainz Germany.

These are times of great change and innovation and that was evidenced throughout the exhibition hall and a host of presentations. 

Ensuring that braking components are sustainable during the phases of manufacturing, use and recycling are an imperative contribution to the industry’s footprint.

It was therefore productive and insightful meeting with colleagues, both existing and new, to discuss the industry and new technological offerings that may be able to bridge the gap for EURO 7.

Huge challenges, along with opportunities, still exist for industrial solutions, companies and new entrants. The legislation, as efficacious as it may be, will be to drive PM10 emissions from the use phase of braking in urban areas. This will be entirely independent of, and likely contra to, the holistic emissions of the component life cycle.

One area of development the MAT Foundry Group is currently working in tandem with Azterlan IK4 is the investigation into harder wearing alloys. It is intended that an increased surface hardness and wear resistance may approach the EURO 7 limits for some load-cases, thus avoiding the use of emissions-intensive exotic carbides and processes.

An equal sharing of resources would ideally be spread across the landscape of potential solutions. This is all aligned with the ambition to push TRLs towards cost-competitive industrialisation.

Thank you to everyone who made us feel so welcome and contributed to the event.

About EuroBrake

EuroBrake 2024 took place between June 17-19 in Mainz, Germany, at the Rheingoldhalle. This annual conference, organised by FISITA, has grown to become the world's largest technical event dedicated to braking technology since its inception in 2012.

It gathers over 1,000 delegates from more than 40 countries, including professionals from the automotive, commercial vehicle, rail, aerospace, and other sectors​.

This year's instalment featured over 120 exhibitors showcasing cutting-edge advancements in braking systems, materials, and testing methodologies. Highlights included keynote addresses from industry leaders, technical sessions covering the latest innovations, and various networking opportunities.

A significant focus, naturally, was on the new Euro 7 regulations, which extend emissions control beyond the tailpipe to include brake emissions​.

EuroBrake 2024 also hosted a range of special events, including a gala dinner sponsored by Brembo, AI and big data analysis sessions, and a visit to the HORIBA Test Centre.

Attendees will had the chance to engage in in-depth discussions on topics such as autonomous driving, smart mobility, and sustainable braking solutions.
