What do WABCO compressors provide?

Compressors generate the pressurized air used in the braking system, air suspension and other air-based applications. WABCO compressors feature highly sophisticated components like high-efficiency die-cast aluminium cylinder heads, power reduction systems and water jackets. Customers can select from a wide range of road proven options (either as a single option or as a combined package).
