The spring-actuated, manually adjustable brake calliper is designed as a holding and continuous slip brake for light to medium applications in general mechanical engineering. The maximum braking force is 5,000 N.
Purely mechanical brakes are often sufficient for simple, secondary applications. The actuating force can be generated through a lever system or a spring with manually adjustable tension. Examples of this application are basic winding machines for foil, paper, cable, wire, and metal band or even strictly for holding applications such as servicing and maintenance work in fan construction or shipbuilding, as well as locking mechanisms in handling systems.
