3D-printed Bugatti brakes capable of stopping the vehicle at a speed of 400 km / h
Bugatti company that manufactures high-speed vehicles with distant 1909, is always trying to use advanced technology. This is logical, since at the same time increasing the security question of power is particularly acute. At the beginning of 2018 the company announced the release of printed the 3D-printer brake calipers, which are able to stop the car at high speed. They are still not present, but the company issued a "fire" video with an imitation of such inhibition.
On the video simulates braking at speeds of 400 km / h. Not surprisingly, at the peak of their work and disk brake calipers warmed right up to 1025 degrees Celsius and emit flames and a lot of sparks. It is believed that the ability to slow down at such a high speed as a positive effect on the maneuverability of vehicles and their safety for the driver and passengers.
On the roads Bugatti cars are so high speed and powerful brake system are extremely rare. The fact that printed the 3D-printer braking system will be established solely on the hypercar Bugatti Chiron. It was he who in 2017 was overclocked to a speed of 400 km / h in just half a minute. Just think - the car accelerates to 100 km / h in just 2, 4 seconds! He is so good that LEGO bricks collected from their copy of it to work. Bugatti company is part of the Volkswagen Group, but the emergence of a new brake other cars not worth the wait. Shaping and polishing of titanium with four lasers takes 45 hours. The manufacturer is willing to do this for vehicles worth millions of dollars, but not for conventional models. Bugatti goal for the near future - to speed up the production to such an extent that 3D-printed brakes can be used in low-cost vehicles.
