Precision Tensioning Brake

Hysteresis brakes are ideal for precise tension control applications. Torque is proportional to input current and independent of RPM. Placid Industries' patented Cog-Buster automatically smooths braking torque. Frictionless torque is produced by internal magnetic fields rather than contact between parts, so torque is smooth, accurate, and reliable. Even high slip RPM causes no wear. Torque is...
