Ogura releases EMB-300CP electric caliper disc brake
Since the brakes are modular in design, multiple brakes can be added to a single disc to increase the torque. If two brakes are used on one disc, the torque doubles.. Customers also have the option, if space is available, to increase the size of the disc to increase the torque. For example, the torque from an 8 disc would be about 150 lb. ft. and from a 16 disc, it would be 300 lb. ft. Brakes can also be made with integral limit switches so that a system would register if the brake is either engaged or disengaged. All brakes also come with manual release nuts so brakes can be released in an emergency. These low cost modular brakes can be used in a variety of industrial applications.
Theses brakes are only a small part of over 3,000 different clutch and brake models that Ogura has available.
