Force Control Industries (Fairfield, OH) MagnaShear motor brakes are maintenance-free, and require no-adjustment, so they virtually eliminate motor brake downtime and maintenance costs. The resulting increase in production time can bolster productivity, efficiency and profitability for manufacturing plants of all types. With no adjustment or maintenance required, save for an annual oil change, these dependable motor brakes allow maintenance personnel to be tasked with other projects, thus allowing facilities to accomplish more work with fewer employees.
Oil shear technology transmits torque between lubricated surfaces – thereby eliminating wear on friction surfaces. A patented fluid recirculation system dissipates heat – eliminating heat build-up which is the most common problem in dry braking systems. Elimination of the wear significantly increases service life and virtually eliminates adjustment which also elongates maintenance intervals.
The totally enclosed MagnaShear brakes are impervious to moisture, dirt and dust that is common in many manufacturing environments. Furthermore, the oil shear technology provides a smooth “cushioned” stop which reduces shock to the drive system, thus extending service life of downstream components.
These proven motor brakes are available to accommodate a wide range of applications. Spring set torque ratings from 3 to 1250 foot-pounds are available. MagnaShear motor brakes are available in multiple torques for the same motor frame.
MagnaShear motor brakes feature “quick mount” features for quick and easy mounting to drive motors in NEMA frame sizes 56 to 449. They are shipped ready to install, with no assembly or adjustments required.
