Servomotor brakes

High performance servomotor brakes for demanding industrial applications

Offering high torque and reliable performance in a small space envelope

A servomotor is a self-contained device that is typically used in the precise control of speed, velocity and angular position. A flexible, compact and powerful solution, servomotors are utilised in robotic, automation and manufacturing applications.

A servomotor consists of a motor coupled to a sensor for positional feedback, and a holding brake to secure a position while in operation or at standstill.

There has been a trend towards the use of spring-applied brakes in servomotors as these can be used for a static position and with suitably adapted friction linings can also be used as a working brake for highly dynamic emergency stops. The flexibility of the spring-applied brake means it’s perfect for many servo applications. Spring-applied brakes in servomotors are reliable with load and give excellent wear characteristics; they can be adjusted to meet the specific application needs and can be supplied with hand-release option.
