Motor brakes are used to hold a load on an application or stop an electric motor from moving. This uses friction between mating surfaces to generate the torque needed to stop the item in question.

We sell both spring-applied brakes and electromagnetic brakes from Precima and Thomson. Spring-applied brakes work best for applications where quick stop-and-hold applications are needed and are often used as fail-safe holding brakes. Electromagnetic brakes are often used for high cycle or soft-release applications.

The brakes therefore have a wide range of applications and are available in a number of standard versions, but can also be adapted to individual customer needs.

If you would like more information about the brakes we offer, please contact us. We have more than 35 years of experience and are happy to share our expertise to ensure you get the brake that meets your specific needs.

Precima brakes

PRECIMA brakes

Precima’s spring-applied brakes are electromagnetically actuated single-disc brakes with two friction surfaces.

  • The braking force is applied by means of compression springs
  • The braking torque is generated in de-energized mode
  • Ventilation (release) of the brake is electromagnetic

Precima has several different types in its product range, each with its own unique specifications. The range includes low-noise brakes, others designed to allow maximum braking torque with limited mounting space, and brake types developed for harsh environments where dirt, dust, or moisture are present. The variety of types ensures that there is one to suit your particular application or project.

Supply voltage standard 12-220 VDC
Braking torque 0-1500 Nm
