MAGNETIC PARTICLE BRAKES AND MAGNETIC PARTICLE CLUTCHES

BRAKING POWER FOR PRECISE APPLICATIONS

As the name suggests, magnetic particle brakes use a specially developed magnetic powder to provide the braking torque. The magnetic particles align themselves with the magnetic field lines and ensure a force-fit connection between the rotor and housing. By varying the strength of the current, and therefore also of the magnetic field, these brakes can be precisely adjusted, making them suitable for a wide range of applications. 

ADVANTAGES

  • Infinitely variable torque
  • Torque virtually independent of speed
  • Low-wear and silent operation
  • Compact design
  • Different variants available

SPECIFICATION

Available in four different sizes with torque options from 10 Nm – 100 Nm, our magnetic particle brakes cover a large part of the usual torque range. The brakes are supplied as standard with a hollow shaft, which is available in different diameters. For applications where higher braking power is required, suitable heat sinks are available for each variant. 

APPLICATIONS

  • Band brake in the textile industry, paper industry, packaging industry
  • Load brake on test rigs

SERVICE

  • Inspection of the brakes to check their function and torque
  • Maintenance and replacement of wear parts
  • Repair and replacement of defective components

ACCESSORIES

  • Heat sink
  • Control unit
