Brake Shoes

Brake shoes are an essential component in many vehicles and machines, playing a crucial role in ensuring safe and reliable operation. 

The technical details of brake shoes are of particular importance. The friction material used on the surface of the brake shoe is critical for achieving optimal braking performance, with different materials offering unique advantages and disadvantages.

At our company, we offer a wide range of brake shoe options to meet the needs of engineers working in various industries. Common used brake shoes of aluminium are DIN 15435 brake shoes. Our products are designed to offer optimal braking performance, durability, and reliability, ensuring safe and efficient operation in any application. We also offer custom solutions tailored to the specific needs of our clients, with a team of experienced engineers available to provide guidance and support throughout the design and manufacturing process.

So whether you’re working on a vessel offshore or a heavy-duty industrial machine, our brake shoes can help you achieve optimal braking performance and ensure safe and reliable operation. Contact us today to learn more about our products and services and find out how we can help you meet your engineering needs.


Overhaul of brake shoes

The overhaul of brake shoes is a critical process in maintaining the performance and reliability of braking systems. Over time, brake shoes can become worn, develop cracks, or experience loss of friction material, resulting in diminished braking efficiency. During an overhaul, the brake shoes are carefully inspected for signs of wear and damage. If necessary, the shoes are relined with new friction material to restore their braking effectiveness. This relining process involves removing the old lining, preparing the shoe surface, and applying a new lining using specialized adhesives and techniques. Additionally, other components such as springs, pins, and retainers are inspected and replaced as needed. By overhauling the brake shoes, you can ensure that your braking system operates at optimal performance, providing reliable and safe stopping power. Our skilled technicians have extensive experience in brake shoe overhauls and can assist you in maintaining the integrity of your braking system. Contact us today to learn more about our brake shoe overhaul services and how we can help you achieve optimal braking performance.
