I welcome David Barton's article on the problems of automotive friction brakes
based on cast-iron rotor technology--mass and particulate emissions (Academic Insight, PE July/ August).
The increased torque density is the result of a high performance solenoid, which can overcome stronger spring force, and the use of a proprietary high-coefficient of friction brake
The speed of the cars was controlled with a friction brake
About six years ago, when seeking an alternative to high brake failures and maintenance requirements, they replaced a Stearns dry friction brake
on one of the Baldor motors with a MagnaShear MSB6.

Based in Washington, it is also undertaking a number of other innovative projects alongside the jigger system, including the development of an offshore drill mechanism for Exxon Mobil and the creation of a unique friction brake
which is being designed to help get oil reserves out of North Sea fields which would otherwise be unreachable.
A boatswain's mate on a ship's forecastle might not be paying attention to the color of the anchor chain paying out of the locker, or turn the friction brake
in the wrong direction, with disastrous results.
Other features include regenerative service braking for energy recovery and reduced friction brake
maintenance, a variable retarding mode to sustain long downhill grades to keep friction brakes
at a reasonable temperature, a hill-holding mode following the release of the friction brake
and braking modes for long downhill grades to prevent traditional brake fade and vapor lock.
Accordingly each chute is fitted with a friction brake
which is raised a few centimetres above the chute floor.
