In one embodiment, a cast iron brake caliper is designed with a thinner than customary section which bridges the gap over a brake rotor between the brake actuator and reaction sides of the caliper. In the pre-stressing process of the present invention,the cast iron caliper is then subjected to a pre-stressing loading in a highly controlled manner to alter the caliper's material structure in the most highly stressed region(s) of the caliper. Preferably, the load is applied to the caliper in the same
The load applied in the inventive pre-stressing process is set high enough to cause elastic deformation in the majority of the brake caliper, and further high enough to also cause a very limited amount of plastic deformation to occur in the veryhighest-stressed regions of the caliper (i.e., exceeding the yield limit in these highest-stressed regions, resulting in plastic elongation of the caliper material). The load must be set high enough to cause the desired plastic elongation, but must also
