This week's Hanover Messe event will see the debut of power transmission components manufacturer Stromag as part of the Altra Industrial Motion Corporation. After joining the group in December 2016, Stromag is showing a wide range of high-performance brakes, flexible couplings and geared cam limit switches at the event.
Various high-performance brakes will be available for viewing on the stand — these include the SHD5A Hydraulic Disc brake and TDXB Thrustor Disc brake — both well suited to applications in tower and port cranes. Additionally, the heavy-duty TDXB Thrustor Disc Brake will be displayed, its robust construction being well adapted for use in port, at the mine or in steelworks. All these models feature wear compensation technology to boost service life.
The SLA Electromagnetic Spring-Applied Brake, a device specifically for parking and emergency stop braking in industrial trucks and vehicles, can also be viewed. Continuing with the electromagnetic theme, the Double-Face Spring-Applied HPI brake from Stromag is a suitable choice for use in harsh environments due to its superior protection. This durability makes it ideal for use in industrial and crane applications.
Two further Stromag brakeson show are the CB120 A-Strong Azimuth Brake, which is tailored specifically for use in wind turbines where it offers a substantial 662kN maximum clamp force, and the SDB 250 Drum Brake, with its braking torque range between 110 to 9600Nm.
