Motor Brakes for Dynamic Severe Duty Applications

Motor Mounted Brakes to Replace Stearns or Dings Brakes
Low Maintenance – No Adjustment – Ever! Oil Shear Motor Brakes

Reliability for those “no downtime” applications.

Designed with Oil Shear Technology the Posistop and MagnaShear Motor Brakes are dynamic stopping brakes designed to mount on the back of a brakeless brake motor. They can survive the harsh environments of mining, manufacturing, material handling as well as packaging and food processing with minimal maintenance and no adjustment-ever. The totally enclosed rugged housings keep dirt and moisture out while reducing noise and extracting heat.

The motor mounted brakes can be furnished 3 ways: (1) mounted on a NEMA or IEC frame motor, (2) furnished as an assembled brake motor with motor and brake assembled, (3) or with a special flange to mount to other flanges such as a gear reducer.
