Today, automation solutions are an essential part of the industry as well as the everyday life. The spread of automation solutions is supported by developments in the field of mechatronics. This also increases the variety of applications. In this conjuction electromagnetic brakes often meet the necessary requirements for holding loads and braking safely in case of an emergency.

The multitude of applications also implicates a wide differentiation of specifications - e.g. concerning torque, sliding speed and braking energy. To meet these different requirements and to ensure the standardisation of the products at the same time is a challenge which Kendrion rises to. Thus, customer-specific solutions can be developed and produced on the basis of an existing product portfolio. In this process the analysis and understanding of industry-sector-specific requirements of the customers is essential.
