Pneumatic brakes

Individual disc brake solutions for industrial use.

Mechanical, Pneumatic, Hydraulic and Spring-Applied Brakes

Directly pneumatically applied disc brakes are used in practically every area of mechanical engineering. The actuating force is created here through compressed air, and the brake is released by spring force. Its range of application spans from light uses such as web tension control to highly demanding applications such as holding and service brakes that can have a braking force up to 33,000 N with just one caliper, depending on the air pressure. There are almost no limits to the braking torque that can be generated, which depends on the brake disc diameter and the number of calipers!
