Altra Industrial Motion, as a leading multinational designer and producer of advanced pneumatic, hydraulic and electromechanical power transmission solutions, has the technology and engineering capability to provide state-of-the-art drive and braking solutions. Wichita Clutch, Twiflex Limited, Svendborg Brakes, Formsprag Clutch, Ameridrives Couplings and Industrial Clutch have demonstrated expertise in the most demanding heavy duty industrial drivetrain applications.
The Twiflex system comprises a Turning gear, Locking device, and shaft Brake (TLB) together with a power unit (e.g. Hydraulic Powerpack) and a control panel for local operation of the system close to the equipment. TLB is available as a continuous turning option as shown or as an indexing system using a simple hydraulic ‘push-pull’ arrangement with the brakes and brake disc to inch the propeller shaft for maintenance and accurate alignment.
The Twiflex T40 disc brake caliper is a split caliper design suitable for use with a minimum disc thickness of 20mm. The modules are mounted on each side of a central mounting plate of the same thickness as the brake disc. Minimum disc diameter is 300mm.
A very popular disc brake caliper comprised of two modules located on either side of a mounting plate of any thickness to accommodate the discs. Manufactured to meet stringent specifications.
The world's largest spring applied heavy duty disc brake caliper! Available in two types, the VMS/2 and VMS3/SP are all manufactured to meet stringent safety standards.
The MX disc brake caliper is a medium duty caliper with a three bolt base mounting which lends itself to mounting calipers back to back in pairs. Friction pads are secured by quick-release clips, and the brakes have a spring retraction to ensure ample pad clearance when the brake is released. Pneumatic disc brake calipers are chosen for their sensitive and rapid response to air pressure levels, making them ideal for tension control applications.
Available in Dualspring and Monospring variations, the BSFI 300/3000 Fail-Safe brakes are spring-applied and hydraulic released - the brake engages when the oil pressure to the brake disappears. The brake spring packs are sized to suit the individual specific braking requirements of an application. Fail-Safe brakes can be used for a range of different purposes, such as parking and emergency stopping in the case of power failure.
