All cars must have a mechanical system to stop and hold the car. the brake shoe is the mechanical device activated by air pressure or by hand, which pushes against the wheel and creates friction, producing a stopping action.
Correctly, the shoe is the metal component used to push the friction lining against the drum in a drum brake system, but the term is now used to refer to the whole shoe and pad assembly.
A brake shoe consists of a steel shoe with the friction material or lining bonded to it. (See Figure 3.) Figure 3. Brake Shoe
A rubber pad which stops the brake by pressing the tire's rim, creating friction.
A rubber pad that stops the bike by pressing on the tire's rim, creating friction.
In a drum brake, an internal component which is pressed against the inside of the rotating drum, normally comprising a layer of friction material mounted on a metal frame. Two are used per wheel.
One of a pair of curved metal components, lined with friction material, located within a drum brake. The pair is pivoted so the shoe set-up can be expanded by hydraulic pressure to effect braking.
Metal assembly in a drum brake system on which a friction lining is mounted.
holds the brake pad.
a restraint provided when the brake linings are moved hydraulically against the brake drum to retard the wheel's rotation
a carrier to which the brake lining is attached, used to force the lining in contact with the brake drum or rotor
The part of a drum brake system, which consists of the friction material and a curved metal former.
The stamped table and web to which the brake lining is attached. Herringbone Pattern - The characteristic pattern cut by a tool bit when a brake drum or rotor is machined without a dampening belt.
the curved metal plate that carries the brake lining.
Moving member(s) of a brake, lined with friction material which, when in contact with the brake drum, holds the elevator at floor level. On some types of control, it will stop the elevator when power is removed from the hoist motor.
The arc-shaped carrier to which the brake linings are mounted in a drum brake. They also force the lining against the rotating drum during braking.
The curved piece of metal or composite material that is pressed against the tread of a wheel to slow a vehicle.
The backing for the brake lining. The term is, however, usually applied to the assembly of the brake backing and lining.
Friction material shaped to fit the tread of the wheel when the brakes are applied.
