Motor Brakes with Oil Shear Technology

They provide longer service life even in demanding applications like those with frequent start/stop cycles.

Force Control Sized

The MagnaShear and PosiStop motor brakes from Force Control Industries (Fairfield, OH) employ oil shear technology, providing longer service life even in demanding applications like the frequent start/stop cycles seen on shipboard or port-side cranes, hoists, winches and other marine material handling equipment.  Specifically:

  • Proven 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.
  • They are ideal for applications where the motor is reversed each cycle such as cranes, winches, and hoists as well as loader/unloader conveyors, rail car spotters and dumpers, ship and rail car loading conveyors, trippers and pallet return conveyors.; 513-868-0900
