Definitions for "brakes"
the combination of interacting parts that work to slow a moving vehicle.
four types of devices used on each car to stop or slow down the train: air, vacuum, dynamic and parking.
Mechanism for slowing or stopping vehicle.
These can be cantilever, hydraulic, v-brakes, or u-brakes.
See disc brakes, drum brakes, hydraulic brake, power brakes.
The brake system uses hydraulic pressure to stop the vehicle when you step on the brake pedal. Pushing the pedal down pumps fluid from the master cylinder to the brakes at each wheel. This squeezes the brake linings against the rotors and drums, creating
Keywords:  bicycle, shoes, caliper, rim, clamping
Any bicycle braking system which works by opening and closing two brake shoes on the tire's rim in a clamping motion, like jaws.
A caliper is a measuring device with two moving parts that come together to determine the dimensions of an object. Most bicycle brakes use a similar mechanism to move the brake shoes inward toward the rim, so they are called caliper brakes.
A band that is tightened around a shaft to stop the rotation of the wheel.
Brakes are a 4-piece band from Brighton, England, fronted by Eamon Hamilton, formerly of British Sea Power. They formed in 2002.
Keywords:  friction, pad, gasses, expels, fade
a large step forward in brake rotor technology that more rapidly expels friction gasses, minimizes brake fade, provides even pad wear, and minimizes the glazing that can occur on pad surface
A brake in which friction is caused by a set of pads pressing against a rotating disk.
An external device or accessory that brings a running motor to a standstill and/or holds a load. Can be added to a motor or incorporated.
Brakes, magnetic brakes, disc brakes, brake manufacturers, eddy current brake and brake parts.
Device used to apply tension to a roll of paper to help ensure even feeding of the web into the printing unit and proper tension from the printing unit to the folder.
