Pneumatic friction brakes from Mach III provide simple solutions for stopping, holding and tension control. They are available in both spring engaged and air engaged models.
Spring engaged brakes remain engaged in the absence of air pressure. They are often referred to as power-off brakes, fail-safe brakes or holding brakes. These brakes are best suited for applications where they are used to prevent rotary motion of a load and are not suitable for dynamic stopping.

Air engaged brakes are applied with compressed air and release in the absence of air pressure. They are often referred to as power-on brakes. These brakes are best suited for bringing a load to a stop and preventing rotary motion of a load. SENSIFLEX® air engaged brakes are specifically designed for tension control, such as providing hold back tension on a roll of film in packaging or laminating equipment.
