KENDRION & INTORQ spring-applied brakes convince due to their high permissible braking energies, high torques and wear resistance. They offer diverse integration and installation options and are therefore ideal for use in servo and geared motors, robotics and automation, elevators, hoists, wind turbines, conveyor systems, medical technology and many other applications. In addition to standard catalog brakes, Kendrion also offers customer-specific brake solutions and supports its customers in selecting a suitable brake solution.
Spring-applied brakes are used, for example, in hoists and drive technology. These applications require brakes with high braking energies and defined braking torque. Above all, controlled deceleration during emergency stopping is essential. The brake must stop in the event of an emergency, generate high deceleration values per braking operation, and reliably hold the load. However, spring-applied brakes can also be used integrated in servomotors, in which case particular emphasis is placed on high torques, temperature resistance and dynamics. Another important aspect is that spring-applied brakes can be implemented with high IP protection classes due to their design.
Organic friction discs, which are typically used in spring-applied brakes, can implement both, high braking energies for emergency stops but also a large number of small and medium braking cycles. Therefore, spring-applied brakes can also be used as dynamic brakes. The relatively low moment of inertia of the friction discs makes it possible to use spring-applied brakes in dynamic applications. A friction disc optimized for the application can be selected for the particular application, e.g., for a specific operating temperature range. In combination with the appropriate design of the spring package, customer-specific brake solutions can also be offered in coordination.
Spring-applied brakes also offer the user various options both for integration within the motor and for external mounting, thus enabling simple and fast installation.
