A brake is a device which slows down and stops the motion of a rotating shaft within a certain time, depending on the entity of the mass to be braked.
We produce the following types of brakes:
- Multiple disc (or multidisc) – chiefly designed for use in oil baths or low speed dry applications;
- Single disc – used only dry.
- Caliper brakes – when the mass to be braked requires large discs; the modular versions have one or more calipers operated simultaneously or separately.
They can be controlled in following ways:
They can operate in two different ways:
when the control generates the necessary braking effect.
- NEGATIVE (with spring pressure):
when the effect (braking) is achieved without control, which causes the brake to disengage. These are mainly used as emergency or block brakes
