Spring Applied Brake serves as safety brake for robotic arms.

Spring Applied Brake serves as safety brake for robotic arms.

Miki Pulley US    Plymouth, MN 55441-5509
Apr 04, 2014 Featuring low profile design to save space, BXR Spring Applied Brake may serve as emergency brake as well as holding brake. Unit is available with outer diameters from 3.287–7.280 in. and torque from 3.688–40.566 lb-ft. In event of power failure while using brake for robotic arms, compression springs engage and capture brake's rotor hub, immediately stopping arm movement. Additional features include single friction plate and smooth armature engagement that operates with no chatter.

Torque Controller maintains constant web tension.

Dover Flexo Electronics, Inc.    Rochester, NH 03867
Feb 19, 2014 Suitable for applications in which precise tension control is not essential, EasyWeb™ Open-Loop Torque Controller provides taper tension to center-driven rewind or unwind operations. Web tension is regulated by controlling motor or brake torque based on varying levels of roll diameter. EasyWeb™ can accept signals from direct diameter sensor or calculate diameter using line and roll speed signals. With bright OLED display, user interface enables viewing in any light and from any angle.

Double Brake Design improves commercial elevator safety.

Ogura Industrial Corp.    Somerset, NJ 08873
Apr 01, 2010 Double MNB brake for commercial elevators consists of 2 identical brakes mounted on one adaptor flange. Since brakes are holding only, both operate simultaneously when required to come on. If problem occurs with one brake, other can still handle torque load required. Both brakes are equipped with limit switches to know when brake is either engaged or disengaged. Product helps meet demands in countries requiring double redundant braking systems for elevators.

Spring-Engaged Brakes mount to servomotors up to 20 hp.
