When you look further into the individual products on offer RINGSPANN’s range of caliper brakes and accessories is truly vast. Clamping forces range from 200 N to 200,000 N per caliper and each brake can be supplied with various methods of activation ranging from spring applied – pneumatic release to hydraulic applied – spring release. Different brakes suit different applications but our new range of Electro – Magnetic brakes really do offer the best option when looking for a ‘clean’ brake with the lowest running costs possible. The EV and EH range are available with spring or electro – magnetic activation and they are available in a range of supply voltages with varying degrees of protection, in fact the most robust version is currently in service on a positioner drive in a southern Chinese coal plant as a parking/holding brake which in emergencies must bring to a halt over 880 tonnes of rolling stock which is a pretty demanding task. The accompanying range of brake discs are equally as impressive ranging from 200 mm to 2000 mm in various materials, various designs and with various methods of fixing to the shaft. Shrink disc, bore and key and cone clamp designs are all part of our standard stock range and are available on short lead times worldwide.
As the market leader in Freewheel technology it is our duty to lead from the front and it is an area that development is continuously on-going. The latest products to be launched are aimed at the food and beverage industry but they can be used anywhere that an anti-corrosion specification is required.
The FBF series of stainless steel freewheels give the machine manufacturers complete confidence that there is zero possibility of contamination and with the high grades of stainless steel used in the construction of these products allied with a superb surface finish, there is zero chance of any bi-product sticking to the surface during production. Manufactured to EHEDG and 3A Standards along with Food and Drug Administration directives, this product leads its field and is the envy of our competitors.
