Literature Details Maintenance-Free, No-Adjustment Crane Brakes

Oil Shear crane motor brakes from Force Control Industries are detailed in a new four-page, full color brochure. These products are designed to provide longer service life with no maintenance or adjustment required, even in demanding applications.

"Elimination of maintenance and adjustment, which is done at height, enhances safety," said a company spokesperson. "Proven oil shear technology transmits torque between lubricated surfaces, thereby eliminating wear on friction surfaces. A patented fluid recirculation system dissipates heat-eliminating heat build-up, which is the most common problem in dry braking systems. Elimination of the wear significantly increases service life and virtually eliminates adjustment and maintenance. These totally enclosed brakes are impervious to the dirt that are common in manufacturing environments."

In addition to cranes, Force Control oil shear motor brakes are suited for applications where the motor is reversed each cycle, such as conveyors, loaders/unloaders, stackers and more.
