Auto Business News-January 23, 2018--Bugatti reveals details of 3D-printed brake calliper
Bugatti, a subsidiary of General Motors Corporation (NYSE: GM), has revealed details of a 3D-printed brake calliper, intended to be the largest functional titanium component produced through additive manufacturing.
Mated to a six-speed manual gearbox with drive to the rear wheels there are six-piston brake callipers
for the front brake disc measuring 380mm in diameter with four-piston callipers
for the rear 320mm diameter discs.
Philippa had to wear leg callipers for nine years and any sudden move would send pain shooting through her body.
"I remember being told the callipers would straighten my legs, which were bent and out of shape," she says.
