In the contact between the surfaces of the clamping jacks with the discs of the braking device generates friction and heat. Thus, the brake shoes can be compared with the brake straps. Both are subject to components of the braking system which should carry regular monitoring. The only difference is that the clamping blocks are components of the drum brakes. Fundamentally, brakes which have the function of supporting the friction are used, namely the brake pads. Due to the constant wear of the surfaces of these elements at every brake always there is more heat generated, which affects the brake shoe in a continuous way.
