Machine Frame Or Bracket To Shaft Drive Arrangement


Mach III offers three types of brakes that are mounted on a shaft and then connected to the machine frame by bolts through the flange: Air Applied Brakes, Spring Applied Brakes, and Tension Control Brakes. The shaft inserts into the bore and is fixed with set screws and a customer supplied key. These brakes can also be mounted mid shaft with the flange connected to a bracket. Mach III provides these brakes bored and keyed to fit the customer's shaft within the range shown for each unit.
