Electro Shear® Brake Reduces Crane Downtime

A major steel manufacturing facility experienced severe downtime on their overhead cranes due to repeated brake failures. The old shoe brake assembly required frequent adjustment and needed costly repairs on a regular basis. The brake linings were simply wearing out too quickly and could not handle the duty cycle in a major processing application. The customer could no longer afford to maintain the current brake system and needed a retrofit solution.

The Solution - Electro Shear® Brake

The Electro Shear® brake is proven and reliable for heavy industrial production environments. Designed for high cyclic applications, the Electro Shear® offers superior heat dissipation and exceptionally long disc stack life eliminating the need to replace the worn linings. Tough, dependable AC Coil technology provides a reliable solution to old shoe brake technology.
