The Evolution of the Pad Guided Disc Brake Caliper 940332

Pad Guided Caliper* (PGC) was conceived in 1981-82 and put into low volume production after some five years of development in severe race applications and numerous durability miles.
Since then over 300,000 units have been produced, in both twin and single piston versions, and have been fitted to vehicles ranging from high performance sports cars to off-road rugged four-wheel-drive trucks.
This paper covers both the PGC concept and the development history of the current and the new generation PGC.
