For a long time now Disc Brakes have been tried and tested in the aviation and automotive industry, and increasing awareness of operational safety and ever stricter rules on accident prevention have made them indispensable. After all, wherever there is acceleration, there must also be braking. A reliable and economic solution to these problems are RINGSPANN Disc Brakes.
RINGSPANN Disc Brakes require minimal installation space. Brake Calipers or Brake Saddles may be arranged in any position on brake discs of varying diameters. By using several Brake Calipers on the same disc it is possible to increase the braking torque without the need to enlarge the installation space.
The universal concept of the RINGSPANN Disc Brake fulfils various functions:
- Stopping brake
- Control brake
- Holding brake
As a stopping brake, it brings a rotating shaft to a standstill in a short time, for example during a power failure or an emergency stop.
As a control brake, it effectively maintains material tension.
As a holding brake, it prevents the unintended start of a stationary shaft.
