Drum Brakes
TBK's drum brakes for heavy- and medium-duty vehicles satisfy stringent demands for driving safety.
Uncompromising reliability is a necessary requirement for brakes for trucks, buses, trailers, and industrial equipment. All Japanese heavy-duty vehicle manufacturers use our drum brakes. We have attained the largest market share in drum brakes by successfully manufacturing and standardizing products of higher quality and reliability.

Besides main drum brakes for heavy-duty vehicles (payloads of 10 tons or more), we manufacture drum brakes for medium-duty vehicles (payloads of four tons or more) and light-duty vehicles (payloads of one to two tons).

TBK has kept pace with recent trends in the global market, highlighted by stricter and stricter safety standards. In practice, we have developed internally integrated automatic adjusters to operate between the brake lining and drum.
