Our brakes play an essential role in medical applications. Click on a specific brake below to view an example of it's application on the illustration.
- Permanent Magnet Brake
For all axis, if backlash is an absolutely critical requirement, a Permanent Magnet Brake can provide true zero backlash. In this example, the PMB can be applied to any of the upper arm joints Learn More
- Spring Engaged Tooth Brake
A Spring Engaged Tooth Brake is used to accommodate the high torque requirement at this joint. Note large thru hole to accommodate wiring harnesses, etc. Learn More
- Spring Engaged Tooth Brake or Friction Brake
Depending on the torque requirement of this primary joint, a tooth brake as in #1 above, or a friction brake as in #3 & 4 below is typical Learn More
- Spring Engaged Friction Brake
For these joints, a friction-style Spring Engaged Brake is used Learn More
- Thin Spring Engaged Friction Brake
As footprint restrictions become increasingly important, a smaller Thin Spring Engaged Brake can be used Learn More
- Ultra Thin Spring Engaged Friction Brake
For the most constricted installations, the thinnest Ultra Thin Spring Engaged Brake is recommended Learn More
