Torque is linear in response to air pressure applied
Flange bolts to machine frame or other fixture, shaft inserts into bore and is fixed with set screws and customer supplied key
Industrial friction brake can also be mounted mid-shaft
Friction brakes are designed for horizontal mounting. If vertical mounting is required, consult engineering for options
Air set industrial friction brakes are suitable for Stopping, Holding and Cycling applications
Maximum RPM varies by model. Please consult the detail sheets (below). Consult engineering if the intended application exceeds the listed maximum RPM.
Air set friction brakes are bored to suit up to the maximum shown (US & Metric) for easy installation.
Drilled & slotted flange to accommodate various installation arrangements
Available with either high or low* coefficient friction linings for same price
Mach III industrial friction brake models are solidly constructed and feature hang-up resistant drives to provide reliable braking and holding. Mach III air set industrial friction brakes can be adapted to accommodate customer needs. See our Custom Design Solutions page for more information.
