Functionally, applying the brakes can either stop or slow down the vehicle. They are also one of the most important components of any transport system. It has to be composed of high-quality parts to work smoothly and efficiently.
There are of two types drum brakes and disk brakes.
The insides of the drum brakes are made up of metal shoes. The brakes are fitted in the form of a drum within the wheel and when the brake is applied the cylinder pushes the shoes out. This friction either slows down or stops the vehicle.
Disk brakes work with a disk or a rotor fitted inside the wheel. The brake pads are held with the help of a caliper on each of the disk and are squeezed against the rotor by the caliper as brakes are applied. The parts move due to the pressure from the fluid.
Contemporary vehicles have a combination of both. The drum brakes are placed on the rear, while the disk brakes are in the front.
