securing vertically moving masses
Typical applications include oblique-angled and vertical axes in the automation industry to provide vital protection of personnel and machinery.
- For small-to-medium sized loads
- One load direction
- Compressive load
safety for oblique and vertical axes
safety brakes design
The clamping system consists of a conical sleeve and a clamping ring with conical bore.
The sleeve is axially fixed in the housing, allowing only radial movement.The clamping ring is guided by the housing and forced over the sleeve in axial direction to clamp the unit.
The clamping force is generated by pressure or spring action and is intensified by means of conical surfaces.
In released condition, the clamping ring is pushed against the springs by the annular piston. A well-defined clearance ensures that the shaft can move without friction.
