Vertical axes

Braking systems for vertical axes - Never compromise on safety

mayr ® power transmission has developed a wide spectrum of reliable safety brakes specifically for the safeguarding of gravity-loaded axes. This is because suspended loads represent a substantial risk potential in machines and systems – in particular if people are standing under them. If inadvertent lowering or drops occur, the load must be brought to a standstill within the shortest possible time in order to protect people and material against damage. The different brake concepts by mayr ® power transmission have been tailored specifically for different machine requirements, and offer the right solution for every application. The friction system featuring leading technology and the safety principles which are consistently taken into account stand for high performance density and above all safe and reliable brakes – as safety does not allow for compromises.
