Are You Interested in the History of your Brakes?

BrakesYou have probably heard the term, a motion in action will continue unless stopped. First, there were drum brakes, but as horsepower increased, the need for improved braking systems we apparent to engineers.

The first drum braking systems were actually made from wood blocks, which were pressed against the steel wheels with a lever. You may have seen this in Model T type cars. They became obsolete in the 1890's. It is reported that the Michelin Brother were the first to develop the drum brake when the created the rubber tire. The drum brake is still used today, and is supported with hydraulic fluid power. By the 1920's the power brake was in use on most expensive cars.

However, the drum brake could become ineffective in wet weather. In the 1950's the disc brake was introduced by Chrysler, however is did not catch on until 1964. The vehicle weight and speed we just too much for the drum brakes. In 1964 engineers solved the problem of the use of proper power assist to the master brake cylinder and each of the disc brake pistons. Today we have efficient and smooth vehicle breaking.
