Ingenious Modular Design – Robust Brakes

They are robust, durable, and highly compact: Elephant Brakes by Rietschoten are preferred by the wire industry for a diverse range of applications. They are unrivaled: The ingenious modular design principle makes brakes of all dimensions possible—deployed in every imaginable size of machine. For tension (continuous duty) brakes, these systems are recommended because of their efficient, highly developed braking technology in the tightest of spaces and easy modulation. Due to their special robustness, the brakes are also used in stopping and holding applications.
