With the improvement of people's quality of life level, the number of people using cars is gradually increasing, and the automobile industry can be said to be an important industry in the national economy. The variety of automobiles is also gradually increasing with the development of the economy, and at the same time, companies are paying more attention to the braking system, which is a series of specialized devices that make it possible to force a car to go slower. This article will give a brief introduction and analysis of the braking system, and some basic information will be mentioned in this article. For example, how the braking system works and the design requirements and precautions for use.

How does the braking system work?

The braking system makes use of the mutual 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 the tendency to turn.The car uses the friction between brake pads and brake discs, tires and the ground, which converts the kinetic energy of the vehicle’s movement into heat generated by friction, so that the car stops. In short, the braking system reduces the speed of the car by friction, and the braking system possesses a strong safety.


What are the precautions for braking a modern car?

·Checking brake parts

After purchasing a new car, if the brake disc is found to be slightly rusty, it is recommended to remove the rust by driving and braking. To the main driver's foot pad, pay attention to all kinds of pedals to leave enough space for movement, so as to avoid insufficient space between the pedal and the foot pad.


·Daily maintenance

If your car is used frequently, be sure to have the formulation system cleaned and serviced regularly. Check for deep grooves on the brake discs. When the thickness of the deep grooves on both sides add up to more than 3 mm, the discs need to be replaced. In addition, the car generates a lot of heat under braking conditions, so do not wash the car immediately after braking, the engine should be turned off to reduce surface temperature of brake discs to prevent its deformation and cracks due to thermal expansion and contraction, which is caused by connecting with cold water in a high temperature.


The design requirements of braking system.


The car should not lose manoeuvrability and directional stability when braking at any speed.


·Braking Performance

The braking capacity of a car is assessed by the braking deceleration and braking distance at a certain initial braking speed, and the stopping capacity is assessed by the maximum gradient at which the car can be reliably stopped on a good road surface.


·Alarm system

When any component of the brake drive fails and its basic function is damaged, the car braking system should have an alarm such as an audio fire signal.

In short, the braking system of a car is the key to whether the car can be driven safely or not. Only when the brakes are sufficiently stable can the car be manoeuvred lightly with good mobility. Winhere produces various types of brake parts for cars and we have strict quality control over each brake component.
