Title (EN) SOLID FINNED ROTOR FOR CALIPER DISC BRAKES AND THE LIKE
(FR) ROTOR MONOBLOC A AILETTES POUR FREINS A DISQUE A COMPAS ET ANALOGUES
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A rotor (10) for caliper disc brakes and the like has an outer friction portion including an annular support plate (32) having a friction ring section on both of the major surfaces thereof adapted to interface with an associated friction member, such as a brake pad. Each of the friction ring sections is formed of a plurality of circumferentially spaced apart fins (42, 44). Each of the fins, (42, 44) includes a substantially flat friction surface (42a), so that the plurality of such surfaces (42a) combine to define an annular, non-continuous friction surface on each face of the support plate (32). The rotor (10) of the invention combines the strength of a solid rotor with the desirable increased cooling characteristics of a vented rotor.
(FR)Cette invention se rapporte à un rotor (10) pour freins à disque à compas et analogues, qui comporte une partie externe à frottement comprenant une plaque de support annulaire (32) ayant une section de bague de frottement sur chacune de ses deux surfaces principales, chaque section étant conçue pour faire l'interface avec un élément de frottement associé, tel qu'un patin de frein. Chacune des sections de bague de frottement est constituée d'une pluralité d'ailettes (42, 44) distantes les unes des autres le long de la circonférence, de sorte que la pluralité des surfaces d'ailettes (42a) se combinent pour définir une surface de frottement annulaire, non continue, de part et d'autre de la plaque de support (32). Le rotor (10) de cette invention associe la solidité d'un rotor monobloc aux caractéristiques souhaitables de refroidissement accru d'un rotor ventilé.
