SEPAC (Elmira, NY) announced the Thin Spring Engaged Brake, a thin-body, spring-engaged, power-off brake. The brake offers reversible mounting with the shaft extending past the brake or within the brake body. The friction disc/rotor and hub are manufactured from lightweight metal, allowing for lower inertia. A splined hub for shaft connections typically provides less than 1.5° backlash. The brake is suited for servo motors/systems, medical apparatus, robotics and imaging equipment, material handling, semiconductors (wafer handling equipment), energy-related (wind, petroleum, etc.) actuators, and security-related actuators for doors, gates, and curtains.
