The rail brakes from mayr® power transmission are safety brakes, i.e. they operate according to the fail-safe principle. They are closed in the de-energised state. The backlash-free, highly rigid clamping units are available for all common linear guideways. For particularly high holding forces or a redundant design, they are available with two braking circuits. Even in the single-circuit version, they offer very high holding forces and are torsionally stiff up to the full nominal force.
The backlash-free, rigid clamping...
... stiffens the NC axis
... protects the ball screw
... improves the process accuracy
... increases the cutting performance
