Miki Pulley Introduces the BXR-LE Electric Brake to the US Market - Ideal for Robotic Arms

See Info At: www.mikipulley-us.com

Plymouth, Minnesota: Miki Pulley is introducing their unique BXR-LE electric spring applied brake for direct sale to OEM’s in North America.

The BXR-LE was specifically designed for use on robotic arms to reduce the cantilevered load and has found value in other applications as well.  The unique compact and lightweight design optimizes machine design efficiency. With accompanying voltage controller, power consumption is stepped down to 7VDC after a split second of 24VDC for brake actuation.

When compared to the other BX brakes in the Miki lineup, this revolutionary BXR-LE design provides just one-third power consumption and heat generation in one-half the overall size thickness. Specifications are:
• Maximum RPM: 6000
• Static friction torque range: 0.32 Nm – 1.32 Nm (0.236 ft-lbs - 0.973 ft-lbs)
• Ambient operating temperature:  -20 C -- 60 C (-4 F -- 140 F)

Applications for the BXR-LE brakes include:
• Robotic arm joints to stop movement during a catastrophic power failure.
• Z-axis ball screw brake on CNC machine centers.
• Mounting on a servo motor face, the slim brake profile saves space.
