Kendrion is your expert for holding brakes
AGVs and AMRs often transport very heavy loads from one place to another in warehouses, production sites or other areas, e.g. at harbors. In order to safely stop and hold the loads e.g. at a ramp, electromagnetic brakes are installed in the drive unit to ensure work safety during operation. The compact and easy-to-install motor brakes ensure safety in the event of a power failure and hold the heaviest loads in position.
Especially for industrial trucks, KENDRION INTORQ has already established itself as the market leader for spring-applied brakes in Europe. We use this experience, combined with modern, agile ways of working and a broad, tailored product portfolio to meet all the requirements of this young industry.
Spring-applied brakes INTORQ BFK457
These electromagnetically released spring-applied brakes can be used wherever rapid deceleration of moving masses or controlled holding of masses is required. Since the braking force comes from pressure springs, the braking torque, which is generated by friction, is available when no current is applied – even in the event of a power failure.
To safely stop and hold the loads, e.g. at a ramp, the INTORQ BFK457 is installed in the drive unit to ensure work safety during operation. Quick mounting with integrated mounting screws and fixed air gap make this spring-applied brake even more attractive.
