Is the axis of your shaft something other than horizontal? The MAGPOWR's B-7V & B-20V Vertical Magnetic Particle brakes will help you achieve smooth, repeatable torque that is proportional to current. These brakes are easy to install, made of rugged cast iron for long life and have minimal moving parts so you can mount the brake, and it starts performing immediately. They operate with the axis vertical, horizontal, or at any angle you require. Instead of the cylindrical design of other magnetic particle brakes, these units have a disk shaped rotor. The space between the rotor and the two sides is filled with the magnetic particles so the unit can be operated in any orientation. Applications can include tensioning of film rolls on vertical shafts, packaging machines and machine tools.
- Torque is proportional to current
- Torque is independent of speed
- Easy control - adjustable while running
- Torque is repeatable
- Self contained with shaft, bores and bearings
- Smooth stops and starts
- Silent operation
