Magnetorheological (MR) rotary brakes have a high potential to operate and deal with other forms of brakes in the automotive industry. MR brake used an external squeeze mode as an additional device to the traditional mode. Whether for heavy or light vehicles, brakes were no longer a small issue whereas it became a crucial problem to maintain safety and to avoid unpredictable cases especially on roads. The conventional hydraulic brake system had a limitation on certain issues including delayed response time, bulky size, heavyweight, brake pad wear, and low performance at high speed. This project aims to fabricate the compression plate for the MR brake and to increase the force at the compression plate of Magnetorheological Brake between 10%-20%. Hence, alloy steel 1010 was used to simulate the prototype of a compression plate. Cutting process, drilling, and grinding processes were applied in this project. The optimal results were obtained by implementing the Finite Element Method (FEM) and Solidworks 2020 software into the parameter analysis. In conclusion, our initiative met its primary goal of increasing the pressure on the compression plate by 10% to 20%. The additional pressure on the compression plate will aid in improving braking performance.
