Precise and reliable electromagnetic clutch and brake solutions for the robotic industry

High performance electromagnetic safety brakes designed and manufactured by SG Transmission can be tailored for any robotic application with varying operating principles, sizes and performance classes. We understand the need to create unique, application based solutions, as robotic technology can be utilised across a range of tasks and in a variety of sizes.

We also recognise that safety is paramount with single and multi-axis technology, as safe braking protects people and ensures smooth production processes. This is particularly true for Artificial Intelligence (AI) which will often operate in the same environment as humans and so required integrated sensors are required to trigger the brakes and halt movement in an emergency. The function and performance of the brake in a robotic application is critical in occupational safety.

Safety brakes (also known as closed-circuit brakes or fail-safe brakes) are used in the event of a power failure, where a load must be held securely or immediately brought to a standstill in case of an emergency stop. This is commonly achieved by the use of a permanent magnet or spring-applied brake.
