Zimmermann Produces an Alternative For Audi Brake Disc

July 6, 2021
Zimmermann was the first manufacturer to offer an alternative solution for the original Audi brake disc "Wave" for the aftermarket. The characteristics from the original spare part are on par with the new model, only the design has been adapted.

With its in-house solution, Zimmermann provides customers with an alternative to the OE disc, thus supporting cost-efficiency and competitiveness in the aftermarket. The aim is to cover as many vehicle models as possible. This brake disc is another decisive step in this direction, as the Sinsheim-based brake manufacturer mentioned.

Quality as Safe as The Original

With the introduction of the brake disc for AUDI, Zimmermann has managed the balancing act of placing an alternative to the original brake discs for many Audi models on the market, without leaving the aim to be cost-competitive. The Zimmermann discs also deliver the relevant features and technical advantages of the original spare parts. These include the weight saving due to the aluminum hub, the free radial expansion of the friction ring due to the floating mounting of hub and friction ring, and the cross-drilling in the friction surface.

New Developments for More Competitive Ability

Zimmermann also remains true to the original "as close to OE as possible" in the material. The compound disc is composed of an aluminum hub with a casted friction ring. Only the design of the "waves", which can be seen on the outer diameter of the original brake disc and give the line its name, has been disclaimed. Elaborate product developments are always necessary when vehicle manufacturers provide brake discs with patent or utility model protection. Qualitatively, these developments are as close as possible to the quality of original spare parts.

For more than 6 decades, Otto Zimmermann GmbH has been developing, producing, and distributing sophisticated automotive components for car manufacturers and the independent aftermarket. In addition to standard spare parts, the company also develops sports and premium brake discs for the requirements of motorsports and tuning. Today, the production program comprises far more than 4,000 different brake components, which are distributed via wholesalers and specialized dealers in more than 60 countries worldwide.
