These motor brakes avoid issues with wear and heat buildup

The MagnaShear motor brake (photo) employs oil shear technology that transmits torque between lubricated surfaces, thereby preventing wear on friction surfaces. A patented fluid-recirculation system dissipates heat, eliminating heat buildup, which is the most common problem in dry braking systems. Elimination of the wear increases service life and also elongates maintenance intervals. MagnaShear motor brakes are ideal for applications where the motor is reversed each cycle. Totally enclosed, MagnaShear brakes are impervious to moisture, dirt and dust, and can be sized to the correct torque independent of the motor frame size or horsepower. They have “quick mount” features for simplified mounting to drive motors in NEMA frame sizes 56 to 449. — Force Control Industries, Inc., Fairfield, Ohio
