Spring-applied brakes

We don't want to slow you down - unless you want us to, of course

Spring-applied brakes are electromagnetically actuated and are used where masses have to be decelerated or held in place.

Compression springs provide the braking force, meaning that the friction-generated braking torque is still available when no current is flowing - i.e. even in the event of a mains power failure.

INTORQ spring-applied brakes from the BFK product range excel through their:

  • versatile potential applications
  • modular design – for optimum solutions
  • Compact size
  • Ease of installation
  • long maintenance intervals
  • high temperature class F (+155 °C)
