Classification of brake


(1) Friction brake. The friction between the brake parts and the moving parts is stopped.

(2) Non friction brake. The structure of the brake mainly includes magnetic powder brake (using the shear force produced by magnetic powder magnetization to brake), magnetic eddy current brake (adjusting the braking torque by adjusting the excitation current) and water eddy current brake.

Structure of brake parts

It can also be divided into external brake block, inner shoe brake, belt brake, disc brake and so on.

Working state of brake parts

It can also be divided into normal closed brake (often in tight brake state, need to apply external force to release the brake) and normal open brake (often in loose brake state, need to apply external force to brake).

Manipulating mode

It can also be divided into human, hydraulic, pneumatic and electromagnetic operated brakes.

Function of braking system

The brake system can be divided into train brake system, parking brake system, emergency brake system and auxiliary brake system. In all the brake systems mentioned above, the running brake system and the parking brake system are indispensable for every vehicle.

Brake control energy

Braking system can be divided into human braking system, power braking system and servo braking system. The braking system with the driver's body as the sole braking energy is called the manpower braking system. The braking system is called the power braking system which completely relies on the pneumatic or hydraulic potential energy transformed from the engine's power, and the braking system which uses both manpower and engine's power to brake is called the servo braking system or the assistant braking system. Force braking system.

Braking energy transmission mode

Braking system can be divided into mechanical, hydraulic, pneumatic, electromagnetic and so on. At the same time, the braking system with more than two transmission modes is called a combined brake system.
