GLOBAL LEADER IN BRAKE COMPONENTS

NUCAP is a privately owned company founded in August of 1994. At NUCAP, we take pride in bringing the market innovations for product performance and manufacturing efficiencies. As experts in cold form stamping for vehicle brake system components we are able to evaluate and improve current products to enhance safety, durability, performance, quality and cost. NUCAP has grown from one operating location in Canada selling brake shoes to eight operating locations in four countries making backing plates, shims, piston cushion, hardware and electronic wear sensors. NUCAP is proud to work with both Original Equipment and Aftermarket companies in the aviation, automotive, commercial vehicle, industrial, motorcycle and rail markets.

NUCAP’s mission is to support our customers in the development of superior brake products that bring value beyond the commodity, delivering:

PRODUCTION CAPABILITIES

All NUCAP products are manufactured to the highest standards using our latest technological advances. The manufacturing process is monitored by expert, specially trained staff in all areas. NUCAP continues to develop and implement new production processes and new brake component technologies that allow us to provide our customers with the highest value product.

With engineers and tooling technicians on staff in each of our facilities, we have the in-house capacity to build over 100 new tools yearly. In-house quality control ensures materials meet stringent requirements. Having design, Quality Control and Manufacturing all in house r guarantees precision in production and a repeatable, quality product delivered to our customer every time – on time.

Total control - in house design and build.

With engineers on staff and multiple locations to build tooling, we have in house capacity to build over 100 new tools yearly. In house quality control ensures materials meet stringent requirements. Design and manufacturing in house further guarantees precision in production and a repeatable, quality product delivered to our customer every time – on time.

High quality production.

Our primary products are metal backing plates, anti-noise shims, caliper hardware, attachment hardware and electrical wear sensor for automotive disc brake pads. In all cases, NUCAP offers the highest levels of service and quality, along with industry leading product range. We offer a very wide product range for global vehicles worldwide, including cars, trucks, commercial vehicles, motorcycles, and even brake blocks for train engines. Our well-recognized new product introduction cycle, coordinates the launch of the necessary back plates, shims, hardware or sensors for a specific new application. This allows our customers being “first into market” in the competitive friction sector.

Today, at NUCAP we have a broad range of presses, modern system of vibrating drums, paint/ logo stations as well as auxiliary equipment, specially adapted to the requirements of our products. Thanks to our tooling knowledge, our stamping process is able to achieve a precision and finish nearly indistinguishable from that of a fine blanking, using a conventional blanking.Today, at NUCAP we have a broad range of presses, modern system of vibrating drums, paint/ logo stations as well as auxiliary equipment, specially adapted to the requirements of our products.

We design and make all necessary equipment, in our own tooling workshop, for the construction of our own dies and plastic injection moulds. Our dies and moulds have been designed to minimize the die changeover time at the press/injection machine, which achieves reduction in manufacturing setup. The combination of tool making and reduced changeover time is a guarantee of flexibility, efficiency and short delivery times and is a key factor for a quick new product introduction into market.
