Take off. For secure traction

Optimum braking on the tarmac

The demand for vehicles is also increasing in airport operations. New superliners are being built - and just like all other aircraft, they have to be brought " on track" into and out of the parking position. For the airport vehicles, this means that not only they have to brake themselves but also the aircraft.



Towing and braking 60 tons and more

A single brake is usually not enough. In a 60-ton aircraft tractor, for example, eight hydraulic fixed caliper brakes from KNOTT are installed. And that is not the end of the performance. Because development is going on all the time - and KNOTT is part of that process so that passengers and freight are always moving safe on the ground.



Whatever the industry expects - KNOTT is ready for it

How big will the next luxury liner be? What requirements will airfield vehicles have to meet in the future? These are all topics that concern you - and us when it comes to the right and precisely matched braking systems.

Let's talk about it!
