Industries' hollow shaft brakes mount easily. Magnetic particle brakes are
ideal for payout (unwind) tension control, load simulation (for testing motors
and actuators), and soft stops. Slip torque is precise, smooth and silent. Torque
is proportional to dc input current and is
independent of slip RPM.
Hollow shaft brakes are available with torque
ranges from 0.3 - 15 lb-inch to 75 lb-ft. Hollow shaft clutches torque ranges:
0.4 - 14 lb-inch to 65 lb-ft.
Industrial workplaces are governed by OSHA rules, but this isn’t to say that rules are always followed. While injuries happen on production floors for a variety of reasons, of the top 10 OSHA rules that are most often ignored in industrial settings, two directly involve machine design: lockout/tagout procedures (LO/TO) and machine guarding.
