ELYRIA, Ohio — Bendix has marked a milestone with the delivery of its millionth Bendix ABS-6 braking system. The system is installed on Class 6, 7, and 8 air-brake tractor-trailers, trucks, motorcoaches, and specialty heavy-duty vehicles.

“Reaching this milestone is a testament to the capability of the technology that the Bendix and Knorr-Bremse team developed,” said Kevin Romanchok, product line director for electronics at Bendix. “The ABS-6 family has not only proven itself to be the premier heavy-duty air-brake system, but it also enabled the age of robust active safety with electronic activation of the brakes with Bendix ABS-6 Advanced with ESP (Bendix ESP) full-stability technology.”

Introduced in late 2004, the Bendix ABS-6 family includes three types of braking systems: the standard Bendix ABS-6 antilock braking system, the premium system with Bendix Smart ATC (automatic traction control), and Bendix ABS-6 Advanced with ESP Electronic Stability Program (Bendix ESP).
