The BrakeMate™ Brake Maintenance Unit

Brake MaintenanceBrake maintenance can be a tedious process, but it is extremely important. The good news is that yet again, Vehicle Inspection Systems has another product to automate a labor-heavy task. Introducing the BrakeMate™ brake maintenance system, a device designed to service heavy vehicle disc brake systems and reduce manual lifting.

Minimize service time and save money with the patent-pending BrakeMate™.  Vehicle Inspection Systems is the exclusive distributor of the BrakeMate™, which is manufactured by the Tulip Corporation, a company engineering products for more than 75 years.

Vehicle Inspection Systems will showcase BrakeMate™ at upcoming trade shows including WASTECON and the Great American Trucking Show. If you’d like to see the BrakeMate™ in person, stop by our booths (#1034 at WASTECON; #23118 at Great American Trucking Show).

“As part of our commitment to the trucking industry, the BrakeMate™ will reduce maintenance time,” Mark Keegans, Vice President of VIS, said. “This drastically reduces heavy lifting, which will result in less potential for injury and free up a mechanic’s time. Our mission has always been to make dangerous and difficult repair tasks easier and more automated. BrakeMate™ does exactly that!”

The BrakeMate™ assembles back on your truck safely and efficiently with the unit’s hydraulic lift.
