Industrial trucks and computer-controlled shelf conveyors have become indispensable in sectors such as the automotive, pharmaceutical, food and manufacturing industries. They are an integral part of material flow systems and help companies improve internal logistics and accelerate processes. Longevity, high reliability and strong performance under high loads and long operating hours play a decisive role. Of course, these characteristics also apply to the components of every electrically powered industrial truck. This is why in these demanding applications, it is primarily spring-applied brakes in the electric drives that fulfil all these attributes. They combine high emergency stop energies with low wear.
