The brake is often used in mechanical equipment, mainly to slow down and stop the equipment.
So what does the brake do?
Brake is to be able to keep moving parts to slow, stop or stop state of a device, by applying braking torque of the fixed components of rotating components, which makes the rotating angular velocity is reduced, at the same time rely on wheels and the surface adhesion effect, produce the road surface of the wheel braking force to give the car to slow down.
The brake is also known as brake.
Nowadays, it is widely used in many fields. It is mainly composed of frame, brake and control device.
Some brakes are also equipped with automatic adjusting devices for the gap between brake parts.
In order to reduce braking torque and the structure size, the brake is usually installed on the equipment of high-speed shaft, but for security requirement is higher large equipment should install in the low speed shaft near the working parts of equipment.
The general working principle of the braking system is that are connected to the body (or frame) use of rotating components and connected to the wheel (or shaft) mutual friction between the rotating element to prevent the rotation of the wheels or the trend of the rotation.
