Motor Brakes


By employing oil shear technology, the MagnaShear motor brake from Force Control Industries provides longer service life, even in demanding applications. Proven oil shear technology transmits torque between lubricated surfaces – thereby eliminating wear on friction surfaces. A patented fluid recirculation system dissipates heat, therefore eliminating heat build-up. The motor brakes are ideal for applications where the motor is reversed each cycle such as loader/unloader conveyors, rail car spotters and dumpers, cranes, winches and other material handling equipment. Spring set torque ratings from 3 to 1,250 ft.-lbs. are available. MagnaShear motor brakes can be sized to the correct torque independent of the motor frame size or horsepower. Furthermore, they feature “quick mount” features for quick and easy mounting to drive motors in NEMA frame sizes 56 to 449. The brakes are enclosed from outside contaminants, with seal integrity for hash and washdown environments. A modular design/assembly allows for ease of servicing and maintenance.
