Floating Calliper Brake

Drive systems in mining and conveyor technology are subject to extreme loads. These are the conditions KTR were aiming at whilst developing the new floating calliper brake KTR-STOP. One distinctive feature is the use of steel instead of nodular iron for the supporting components. Since steel has is more flexible, the system deforms slightly with high mechanical load. That is why the power potential of the brake system can be significantly increased. At the same time about 50 % higher power density could be achieved by this design feature. This is why it is possible in many cases to use the next size down for the application. The resulting reduction in space and weight has considerable benefits particularly with underground mining and offshore applications.
