Electromagnetically actuated couplings and brakes

Always ready for any challenge

We use electromagnetically actuated couplings and brakes for starting, stopping, positioning and securely holding moving masses in place. They are also available as coupling-brake combinations, fitted together in a common housing.

Electromagnetically actuated couplings and brakes are particularly well-suited to applications requiring high levels of rotary and braking torque, fast switching times or the strictest safety standards, as well applications which are characterised by extreme conditions.

Thanks to our scalable modular system, we can offer you the optimum solution for your specific application.
