Industrial trucks and computer-controlled storage and retrieval systems have become indispensable in industries such as automotive, pharmaceutical, food, and manufacturing. They are an integral part of material handling systems, helping companies improve internal logistics and speed up processes. Durability, high reliability and strong performance under heavy loads and long operating hours are key.
The application determines the brake
Of course, these characteristics also apply to the components of any electrically powered industrial truck. For this reason, spring-applied brakes in electric drives are the first choice for these demanding applications. They combine high emergency stop energy with low wear.
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.
