Coupler Brake

Coupler Brake

Force Control Industries Inc. recently developed a double C-face coupler brake that mounts on the drive end of a standard C-face motor, replacing the commonly used motor brakes mounted on the back of a special motor designed with a mounting flange and extended shaft on the fan end of the motor. Mounting the brake between the reducer and motor allows a standard C-face motor to be used. Since many plants stock C-face motors for other applications, this eliminates the purchasing and stocking of both a brake motor and a standard C-face motor, simplifying inventory and reducing costs. Applications include palletizers, packaging machinery, baggage handling systems, concrete block manufacturing, cranes and more.
