DEFINITION & THEIR MECHANISM
A Device for decreasing the Speed of a moving body or for stopping its motion.
Most Brakes act on Rotating mechanical elements & absorb Kinetic Energy either Mechanically, Hydraulically or Electrically.
Mechanical Brakes are the most common, they dissipate Kinetic Energy in form of heat generated by Mechanical friction between a rotating metallic drum or disc & a stationary friction element brought into contact with it by mechanical, hydraulic or Pneumatic means, The friction elements for drum brakes may be bands or Shoes i.e. Blocks with one surface concave.
It works on a mechanism where the drum Brake is actuated to contact with Internally expending shoes in it, by pressure exerted on Brake Pad/ Lever directed on semi circular brake shoe by a system of flexible Cables/ rods.
Standard Drum Brakes were invented in 1902 by LOUIS RENAULT. His brakes worked by using a CAM to force apart two hinged shoes . Drum Brakes are improved in many ways over the years , But the basic Principle remains 20th century even with the advent of Disc Brakes in 1970s , Drum Brakes remain the standard for REAR WHEELS.
There are several types of Brakes used today such as Mechanical Brakes ,Hydraulic Brakes ,Pneumatic Brakes, Electro-Mechanical Brakes etc. ,The Brake Used today Commonly are Drum Brakes with Mechanical and Hydraulic Systems.
We can categorize Brake Shoes as per vehicle requirements as 2 Wheeled & 3 wheeled. Depending upon their Friction Material properties Brake Shoes are Organic , Metallic or Ceramic type & Depending upon their Shoes they can be classified as Aluminium casting & fabricated shoe.
Most Generally we can categorize Brake Shoes comparing their friction material composition as:
MK has all type of brakes shoes with High Performance meeting with International quality standards.
