Power Off Brake For Short Axial Shaft

clock June 19, 2017 14:45 by author Mach III Clutch

The Need:D5F2R-001gif

  • Minimum 600 pound inches to hold a shaft stationary when air pressure (power) is absent.
  • Brake must fully release when 60 PSI is applied.
  • Ample radial space available to connect the brake housing to the machine frame, but . . .
  • Only 2.125 Inches of an un-keyed,  1.687 Inch round shafting extends from the  machine frame.

The Solution:

  • Custom brake design uses a shrink disc to lock the brake hub onto the shaft.
  • Brake housing connects to the machine frame on a 6.563 Inch Bolt Circle.
  • Brake provides 1,200 pound inches of brake torque, fully releases at 59 PSI.

Holding Brake With Manual Override

clock October 17, 2016 03:17 by author Mach III Clutch

holding brake with manual overrideThis holding brake is used to secure a load on a hoist until it is required to be moved, at which point air pressure is applied to release the brake. However, if the power fails and compressed air is unavilable, the user needed the option to manually release the brake and move the load by hand.  Mach III engineers incorporated a lever that releases the brake manually when pushed in either direction.

  • D3C2R-005 Spring Engaged, Air Released Brake
  • Torque Rating = 461 pound inches
  • Brake remains engaged until air pressure is applied
  • Manual override lever can be used as an alternate method of brake release during power failure
