Wind energy is bound to experience record growth over the next few years and will make a major contribution to the future of our energy supply! Kendrion offers the manufacturers of wind turbines a number of suitable brakes for azimut and servo drives that ensure the optimum exploitation of wind energy.
Optimum Safety, Performance, and Flexibility
For azimut drives, i.e. for the alignment and exact positioning of the nacelle, the spring-applied brakes INTORQ BFK470 and INTORQ BFK458 are the perfect solution for external attachment.
In pitch drive, which is decisive for the optimum adjustment of the rotor blades, the encapsulated INTORQ BFK470 for external attachment and the HIGH TORQUE LINE with permanent magnet technology for integrated installation in the servormotor have proven their value.
No matter whether onshore or offshore, the conditions in wind parks can be rough: Brakes for wind turbines have to resist the extremely difficult ambient conditions such as temperature (heat and cold), widely varying humidity, dust, and vibrations. The electromagnetic brakes in Cold Climate Version (CCV) are designed for temperatures of up to -40° C. Our modular designs allow to configure our brakes as required: adaptation of size, friction lining, supply voltage, and more.
Our brakes meet the highest holding torque requirements. For operators, the high functional safety with minimum idle times ensures the economic efficiency of the plants, not least for plants in remote areas difficult to access.
All our production sites in Germany, China, India, and the USA manufacture according to identical processes and standards. This means that no matter where our customers are located, they can be sure that our products fulfil the highest quality and safety standards possible.
