Wet Brakes, Multi-Disc Brakes for the Construction Industry

Multi-Disc Brakes and Dry Braking Applications For The Construction industry

Backhoes, bulldozers, front-end loaders, and excavators across the globe are supported by GMP Friction components in winches, torque limiters, wet wheel brakeswet disc brakesdry braking, transmission discs, parking brakes, and multi-disc brakes.

As for all our markets, GMP Friction has also produced niche products for the construction market. A case in point: a winch manufacturer needed a material that could absorb high energy per unit area, with a high coefficient of friction, for a winch brake used in a very compact environment and with a constant slip application generating tremendous heat. GMP Friction Products was able to develop the ideal high-energy friction material to meet all their requirements, and one that’s also free of friction fade as well.

In the construction industry, where heavy machinery operates in rugged environments with demanding workloads, sintered metallic dry brake pads and dry clutches offer unparalleled reliability and performance. These components are engineered to withstand the punishing conditions encountered on construction sites, including dust, debris, and frequent stops and starts. The sintered metallic construction provides excellent heat dissipation, ensuring consistent braking and clutch engagement even under extreme temperatures generated by heavy loads and prolonged operation. This reliability is essential for construction machinery, where precise control over braking and clutch engagement is crucial for safety, efficiency, and productivity on the job site.

Moreover, the durability and longevity of sintered metallic dry brake pads and dry clutches contribute to cost savings and operational efficiency in the construction industry. With their ability to endure the heavy-duty demands of construction equipment, these components require less frequent replacements and maintenance, reducing downtime and associated expenses for construction companies. Whether it's excavators, bulldozers, cranes, or other heavy machinery, the reliable performance of sintered metallic dry brake pads and dry clutches helps to ensure that construction projects stay on schedule and within budget, ultimately contributing to the success and profitability of construction operations.
