The brake caliper is designed for higher braking forces. It can be directly mounted onto the gearing, for example, due to its side mounting. 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 ventilator construction or shipbuilding, as well as locking mechanisms in handling systems.
