Winch Brake Design

Winch Brake Design

Winch Brake Design

I'm at the moment designing a winch brake system (for an ATV winch) and I'm having some difficult on finding specific literature or even some drawings or cad files. The brake system I'm looking for is the one similiar to the one used in WARN winches.
The information I've found until this moment was just some youtube videos and a few exploded views of the assemblys provided from manufacturers.
My goal is to understand a bit more about the mechanism work and the desgning considerations to have while devoloping such a system.
I've found a paper on this subject ('A study on properties of a cone-type brake for motor vehicle winch') however the brakes that are addressed aren´t the ones that I'm looking to design.

Hope someonde can help me!

(First I'm sorry for my bad english. Second, I'm not sure if this is th right thread to post my question, because I'm new to this forum.)

Do you want help copying an existing product? Do you have any original thoughts of your own?
