Multiple disc design reduces the inertia of the brakeClick image to enlargeAir operated Posistop oil shear motor and coupler brakes from Force Control Industries, Inc., are ideal for severe duty applications, and when equipped with a hazardous duty valve can be used in hazardous environments. 

Furnished as spring-set, pressure release brakes, pressure set brakes are also available for applications where torque needs to be adjusted.

Multiple disc design reduces the inertia of the brake, which puts less load on the motor, and improves efficiency each cycle.  The brakes are ideal for palletizers, conveyors, hoists, winches, elevators, stackers, loaders, and unloaders.

Five models offer torque from 6 lb. ft. to 2,030 lb. ft, and fit 56 frame up to 440 frame motors.  Installed horizontally or vertically, they require minimal air volume up to a maximum of 80 PSI.  Special flange mountings can be furnished to accommodate IEC, servo and other flange sizes.  Various shaft connections are available including bore and key, split clamped quill, and tapered collet. Designed as dynamic brakes, Posistop brakes can stop a load as well as hold it.  Their high thermal capacity allows higher cycle rates and heavier loads.
