Classified by friction

1 friction brake. Braking by the friction between the brake and the moving part.

2 non-friction brakes. The structure of the brake mainly includes a magnetic powder brake (using the shear force generated by the magnetization of the magnetic powder to brake), a magnetic eddy current brake (the adjustment of the braking torque by adjusting the exciting current), and a water eddy current brake.

Brake structure

It can also be divided into outer block brakes, inner shoe brakes, band brakes, disc brakes, etc.

Brake working condition

It can also be divided into normally closed brakes (usually in the closed state, external force is required to release the brakes) and normally open brakes (usually in the open state, external force is required to brake);

Manipulation method

It can also be divided into manual, hydraulic, pneumatic and electromagnetically operated brakes.

The role of the brake system

The brake system can be divided into the service brake system, the parking brake system, the emergency brake system and the auxiliary brake system. In each of the above brake systems, the service brake system and the parking brake system are required for each vehicle.

Brake operating energy

The brake system can be divided into a human brake system, a dynamic brake system and a servo brake system. The braking system that uses the driver's body as the sole braking energy is called the human braking system; the system that is completely braked by the potential energy of the air or hydraulic form converted from the power of the engine is called the dynamic braking system; The brake system that brakes manpower and engine power is called a servo brake system or a power brake system.

Brake energy transmission

The brake system can be divided into mechanical, hydraulic, pneumatic, electromagnetic and many other types. At the same time, two types of braking systems that use the uploading energy mode are called combined braking systems.
