We thought we’d show you a couple of unusual projects our engineers are working on at the moment (when they’ve finished their cuppas!).
In the foreground in 2 halves is a brake band used in an undersea mining works. We will make 6 more bands to this sample, all on site here in Wolverhampton. These bands have woven brake linings 1″ (25.4mm) thick. This is thicker than the more regularly used brake linings which usually vary from 1/8″ (3.2mm) to 3/8″ (9.5mm).
Behind the brake band is a solid Wedge Ring, then Lining Wedges for use on machinery in the production of construction & building materials. These particular ones have been relined & ready for despatch.
Not your typical car or motorcycle brake shoes, these are both examples of the heavy duty industrial type of brake we specialise in.
