The DP6 marks a noteworthy step in the evolution of the DynaPro caliper series. DP6 calipers offer the performance advantages of a larger pad and a six piston differential bore configuration, with complete bolt-on interchange ability to the four piston 5.25" lug mount DynaPro models, and the long standing Dynalite caliper series.
As with the previous DynaPro models, the strength of the DP6 is a combination of process and design. Premium grade alloy billets are stress-flow forged resulting in a highly efficient, high strength body. Stress flow forging re-aligns the internal grain structure of the metal within the contour of the caliper body. This process is proven to provide superior strength over any other process derived from castings or straight billet block machining. FEA assisted solid modeling design technology was employed to find the optimum balance between lightweight with superior strength against deflection and body separation under high load.
In addition to the sturdy, yet stylish body, the DP6 incorporates race proven technology and the latest Wilwood performance enhancements. Pad clamping force is generated by six heavy wall stainless pistons configured in a leading to trailing edge differential bore pattern. The heavy wall pistons have been re-engineered to fully resist backside deflection at high pressures while maintaining balanced pad loading for even wear over the length of the pad. Stainless steel resists corrosion while inhibiting direct heat transfer from the pads to caliper body, seals, and fluid. Two choices for overall piston volume provide options to match caliper size with master cylinder output and bias requirements.
The DP6 uses the upgraded type 6712 pad that provide the larger overall volume size from the previous Dynalite and DynaPro four-piston models. The pads are retaining with exclusive Wilwood Quick-E clips for simplified pad service and maintenance without caliper removal. Stainless steel SRS bridge plates are used to dampen engagement harmonics, eliminate pad rattle, and protect the caliper bridges from gouging by the pad edges. Four corner bleeds and internal fluid passages accommodate front or rear mounting and simplified gas evacuation regardless of mounting position. Standard DP6 calipers feature a high gloss black finish. Bright polished, high gloss red, and other custom Wilwood colors can be ordered to add personalized style for custom applications.
About Wilwood Engineering
Wilwood Engineering designs and manufactures high-performance disc brake systems. Since the company’s inception in 1977 by Bill Wood, we have developed a substantial matrix of brake components and engineering techniques that allow us to quickly and reliably create brake systems for almost any application. Our core ability is the rapid development of custom engineered brake systems using a combination of off-the-shelf and custom components. In addition to designing and manufacturing brakes for all types of competitive motor sports, Wilwood also manufactures brake systems and components for agricultural equipment, industrial applications, utility vehicles, snowmobiles, quads, motorcycles and military vehicles.
With headquarters in Camarillo, California, Wilwood employs approximately 250 people. We have on-shelf stock of more than 300 different brake calipers, 200 rotor designs, 100 master cylinder designs and a wide assortment of brackets, fittings, valves and brake lines. Our off-shelf brake calipers range in size from tiny calipers used on go-carts and light duty industrial equipment, to heavy duty original equipment brakes for the U.S. military Humvee.
Wilwood's engineering department uses the latest computer-aided design and manufacturing techniques in conjunction with finite element analysis, dynamic test and cycle test equipment, to find high-performance and reliability solutions for the most difficult braking tasks. Our extensive inventory of proprietary on-the-shelf components allow us to provide cost-effective solutions for unique brake applications.
Wilwood is ISO 9000 compliant and has extensive experience maintaining quality levels of 100ppm or less for original equipment manufacturers.
