MWM caliper brakes enable to solve at best all application problems in case that the shaft to be braked has a large diameter and the available axial distance is restricted.
When it is not possible to apply a disc with a required diameter, it is enough to apply more than one clamp.
This type of brake is also very suitable in case that work involves a constant pull on the material.
Of course, a pressure regulator is required.
The assembly of these brakes does not requires a particular attention thanks to the new self-aligning system with orthogonal sliding which allow an automatic brake-disc alignment.
Caliper brakes can have two operating modalities:
- POSITIVE: when the control produces the braking effect.
- NEGATIVE (Spring Applied): the braking effect is obtained when the control is absent. These clamp brakes are mainly used as safety and parking brakes.
MWM caliper brakes offer a variety of models, which are available in different dimensions for every application's demand.
