In 1951, Twiflex introduced disc brake technology for industrial applications, designing a range of calipers for use in the steel, paper and marine sectors. So commenced a continual programme of innovative braking solutions, becoming the first in disc brake design, reliable performance and application.

Today, Twiflex offers the world’s widest range of industrial disc brakes & thrusters.
