Brake motors are created by coupling a single-phase or three-phase motor with an electromagnetic brake unit. They provide precise control during the clamping phases and are mainly used for:
- reduce machining times by lowering the slowdown periods of machinery;
- carry out positioning and stationing;
- meet the requirements of safety regulations.
We have three types of brake with passive action and spring braking ( TYPE S - TYPE B - TYPE AC ) and one with positive action and magnetic attraction braking ( TYPE P ).
Passive braking also works when the power supply fails, so they are safety devices.
As of 1st July 2021, self-braking motors must also meet the requirements of Regulation (EU) 2019/1781 on energy efficiency.
