Brake system construction
Simply explained, the brake system consists of 4 main components:
- The control unit
- The transmission device
- The wheel brakes
- The electronic driving safety systems
The complex braking system works through a chain reaction triggered by the pedal. The components release the braking effect in a joint play. There are differences between the drum brake and the disc brake in the individual parts. But the disc brake is the most common in modern vehicles.
How does a brake system work?
Braking starts when you step on the brake pedal. The resulting force acts on the brake booster. This amplifies the driver's actuation force by working with negative pressure. This function is particularly important for fast and powerful vehicles. The master brake cylinder now converts the increased force into hydraulic pressure, which is then transferred to the wheel brake through various hoses and lines. The pressure is regulated by an intermediate electronic hydraulic unit. The actual braking process begins in the wheel brake piston. The resulting clamping force presses the brake pads against the brake disc or the brake drum of the wheel brake. The braking torque generated slows down the disc or drum and consequently the wheel.
Buying brake systems for car parts safely
The brake is the most important system in the vehicle. Therefore, you should only rely on the highest quality from renowned manufacturers. In our online shop you will find spare parts from brands such as Brembo, Bosch, TRW, etc. Trust in many years of experience and highest safety. Friction causes natural wear on the brake discs and brake pads, therefore it is recommended to check and replace them regularly. Our range offers you the right parts for this. Since friction generates thermal energy, i.e. heat, cooling plays an important role here. You can find spare parts for this as well as brake fluid or special driving safety systems such as ABS or ASR in our online shop. Discover our great offers now!
