The brake is also called a brake device, which shows that it is very many in automotive applications. Secondly, on machinery and equipment, in order to make it safe and stable production, brakes are also used. In short, different types of braking devices are used where they are not used. For example: bicycles and cars, although they are both vehicles, their functions are the same in terms of the use of brakes, and the structure is still very different. Let ’s take a look at the structure and advantages of the lower disc brake.
The disc brake is mainly composed of brake disc, oil cylinder (air chamber), brake caliper, oil (gas) pipe and other components, and liquid (gas) as the power source. The disc brake is a friction pair with the end face of a rotating brake disc. A brake pad composed of friction material and its metal bottom plate is installed on its fixed bracket. These brake pads and their tensioning devices are mounted on The caliper brackets that span the sides of the brake disc are called brake calipers. The brake disc is made of alloy and fixed on the wheel, and rotates with the wheel. The oil cylinder (air chamber) is fixed on the bottom plate of the brake. The two friction plates on the brake caliper are mounted on both sides of the brake disc, respectively. The piston of the oil cylinder (air chamber) is affected by the liquid (gas) pressure from the oil (gas) pipe, and the friction plate is pushed against the brake disc to cause friction braking, just like clamping the rotating plate with pliers, forcing movement Stop moving.
Disc brakes have the advantages of good heat dissipation, small heat decay, and good thermal stability. Fuhua disc brakes are suitable for front wheel brakes of cars that require high braking performance. For cars, rear-wheel brakes often use long-life drum brakes to attach parking brakes. This is the front-disk rear-drum hybrid brake system.
