B Series Magnetic Particle BrakesRead MoreB Series Shaft Mounted Magnetic Particle Brakes give operators exactly what they want: high-quality, dependable performance with no headaches. The magnetic particle brake is an inherently simple, durable device. They are easy to install, made of rugged cast iron for long life and have minimal moving parts, meaning the brakes can be mounted and start performing immediately.
MAGPOWR B-7V and B-20V Vertical Magnetic Particle BrakesRead More
Unlike other magnetic particle brakes, a horizontal axis is not required for shafts utilizing MAGPOWR’s B-7V & B-20V Vertical Magnetic Particle Brakes, thanks in particular to the unit’s disk-shaped rotor. Other brakes sport cylindrical designs, requiring a horizontal shaft axis. The B-7V & B-20V operate with the axis vertical, horizontal, or at any other required angle—the space between the rotor and the two sides is filled with magnetic particles, so the unit can be operated in any orientation.
MAGPOWR’s B-7V & B-20V Vertical Magnetic Particle brakes, made of rugged cast iron for long life, are easy to install and have minimal moving parts, requiring very little installation and calibration. These brakes assist in smooth, repeatable torque that is proportional to current, and applications include tensioning of film rolls on vertical shafts, packaging machines and machine tools.
