Special Brake Design Solutions for Your Brake System Needs

Custom Brake Design Solutions 

Knott Brake Company knows that introducing a new vehicle on the market or improving the brake design on an existing system is your top priority. Providing high-quality, premium performance brakes products is our top priority.

Custom-Designed Brakes. Products That Are Budget-Friendly

Budgets are a reality for us, just as they are for you. Knott brakes are cost-justifiable due to their superior brake designs and sophisticated manufacturing technology. What does this mean for you? Longer and more effective service life for your products, and less downtime and more productivity for your business.

Problem-Solving With Customized Brake Designs Solutions 

We worked with an Ohio steel mill company that needed to reduce their spare part inventory and decrease service intervals on their equipment. We developed custom hubs, brake rotors, wheel-end assemblies, and drive sprockets for their machines, with some weighing more than 100,000 pounds. As a result, their average brake service was cut from two hours per wheel down to just minutes. This is characteristic of how Knott addresses customer concerns and works with a variety of industries to provide a complete solution for specialized brake designs.

Which Brake Design Is Right For You?

Knott Brake strives to provide our customers with high-value, affordable custom-designed solutions. We collaborate with our customers to design brake solutions that exceed performance requirements and help our clients achieve cost savings for their brakes. From drum brakes, disc brakes, wet brakes to brake liners you can design your custom-tailored products with us to meet your specific needs and goals. 

While touring the facilities of a leading industrial maintenance equipment manufacturer, Knott Brake identified an opportunity to resolve a reoccurring and costly problem and reduce overall cost. Our engineers developed a custom solution that streamlined a previously high-cost weldment that was prone to failure and a brake into a single, high-strength, and high-quality assembly, which reduced overall cost. 

This is just another example of our custom brake designs and value-engineered product helped our client reduce part count and overall cost.

Pictured bottom right is the complete assembly; the spindle is integral to the brake and, when mounted to the machine, not only functions as a brake but also as a structural part of the equipment.
