This brake is used in handling systems and general-purpose mechanical engineering. The braking force of this mechanically actuated brake is 1,650 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.
