This spring engaged, air released friction brake was designed at the request of a thermoforming machinery manufacturer in Taiwan who needed to assure that a forming platen is held stationary in the absence of air pressure. Communicating by email across 7,800 miles and 12 time zones, Mach III’s engineers were able to obtain all the details about the application as well as the dimensions of the servo motor and gearbox the brake would go between.
Within a couple of days a design and quotation were presented for this holding brake which has 2,409 pound inches of torque. The brake connects directly to a Yaskawa SGMGV-IE 15kw servo motor on the input side and a Lenze GKS-11 3W gearbox on the output side.
