Original Press Release:
The New MORStop Tilt-Brake
East Syracuse, NY (10/28/2003) - Morse Manufacturing, the specialist in drum handling equipment, is proud to announce another first in the material handling industry - the MORStop Tilt-Brake. When dispensing a heavy drum, especially an unbalanced drum, operators may need to manually lock the pull-chain or crank handle to prevent unwanted drum rotation. The unique MORStop Tilt-Brake mechanism automatically stops and holds the drum tilt angle. It is a simple, compact anti-backdrive device that functions smoothly and quietly in both directions.
The MORStop Tilt-Brake utilizes proprietary technology to give the operator unprecedented control as well as smooth and quiet operation. When used together with the industry standard Morse Pinion & Spur gear tilt-drive, the operator can easily tilt and dispense a drum at will and have it stay tilted without the operator holding onto the pull-chain or crank handle.
The new MORStop Tilt-Brake can be used on any new or used product from the Morse Karrier product series (185, 285, or 400 series), or any manual tilt product using a Morse style gear block. The MORStop Tilt-Brake accessory can be easily installed to any existing Morse Karrier product with a simple field installation.
