Spring-applied brakes as energetic optimised complete systems

Magneta 7/1/2014

Energy-Efficient Safety BrakeIn conjunction with braking scarcely nobody was thinking about energy saving up to now. However, in future, this will probably change. Rising electricity tariffs as well as motors of higher energy efficiency categories require energetic optimised brake solutions. Spring-applied brakes of a new generation accommodate this trend notably.

With the development of the KOBRA (Kendrion Optimized Brake), the brake experts of Kendrion succeeded in designing a novel energy-efficient safety brake, free and independent from existing products. It reaches energy savings of up to 75%, convinces with high torques and, on top of that, is highly durable. The fact that great store was set by sustainability and environmental protection concerning production, material selection and recycling can also be mentioned as positive.
