AbstractA brake caliper has the effective modulus of elasticity of the material increased by inserting a honeycomb-like ceramic piece made of a material having a higher modulus of elasticity in a die and casting metal to fill the die, substantially encase the ceramic and substantially fill the pores of the same, and squeeze forming the molten metal to ensure substantial filling of the pores of the ceramic.
