A slack adjuster is generally used on commercial vehicles having air brakes with S cam shaft. The key function of this system is to transmit the braking torque to the S cam and facilitate adjustment of the clearance between brake lining and the brake drum, which is mostly triggered due to the wearing of brake lining. The slack adjuster assembly is mounted on the S cam shaft, and one end is connected to the push rod of the brake chamber. When the brake pedal is pressed, the air is let into the brake chamber, which thrusts the push rod out and moves the slack adjuster assembly.
Increase in production and sales of vehicle globally and rise in demand for advanced breaking systems drive the global automotive slack adjuster market.
