Bugatti recently announced that it has created the world's first solid piece of titanium brake caliper using a 3D printer. Now we can see how the disc and caliper heat up when braking from just 380 km / h. We are just writing because the 1750 hp SSC Tuatara braking system must withstand speeds of over 500 km / h.
During the latest experiments, the disc was accelerated on the bench to a speed of 380 km / h and the brakes were applied several times. The effect is spectacular and vividly shows how incredible loads the braking system of the hypercar experiences during high-speed driving.
Already during the third braking, the temperature of the discs and the caliper weighing 3 kilograms exceeded 1000 degrees Celsius, and during the race on the track, acceleration above 300 km / h and braking to 100-150 km / h takes place tens or hundreds of times. Despite this fact, the titanium calipers from the 3D printer perform excellently, so we can expect to see such a brake system in the company's new models.
