Since the beginning of the automobile, vehicle braking systems have played an important role in the safety of the vehicle. In the early stages of vehicle development, vehicles were driven at low speed and traffic density was low, thus requirements for braking systems were relatively low. As social demand increased, so did the use of braking system accessories, which led to a gradual increase in the variety and quality of braking systems. Today, the braking system has become a very mature system, which plays a vital role in the movement of the vehicle.

The main components and functions of braking system.

·Brake pads

Usually brake pads can guarantee a service life of 30,000 km. Brake pads are a key component in the braking system of a car, and their performance is directly related to the braking effect of the car. They can withstand various environments, hot, cold, dry and wet, and can maintain structural stability at high temperatures and provide sufficient friction.

 

·Brake discs

Brake discs rotate when the car is in motion. The brake caliper grips the brake disc and generates braking force, and the brake calipers do hold brake disc when the car is slowed down or stopped by brakes.

 

This is the main function of the braking system, which uses the friction between the non-rotating elements connected to the body and the rotating elements connected to the wheels to stop the wheels from turning or tending to turn. When using the braking system, firstly observe what form of braking system is used on the vehicle. Observe the rust around the brake disc and wheel hub, remove the brake pump, disc and caliper and clean the surface of the brake disc and its surroundings.

 

How does the braking system work?

It is well known that energy can only be transformed from one form to another and the total amount of energy remains the same during the process of transformation or transfer. The braking system works by creating a large frictional force that converts the kinetic energy of the vehicle into thermal energy. The braking system works mainly by friction to slow down and stop.

 

How to maintain braking system.

To replace the brake pads according to the mileage.The braking effect of a car is ultimately determined by the brake pads, so keeping the brake pads in good condition is the most direct maintenance method of the brake system.Change brake fluid regularly. Brake fluid is a part that has a far-reaching impact on the brake system in addition to the brake pads.New car owners should pay attention to the running-in of the brake system. New car has a indispensable running-in period of brake system at the beginning of its use.
