Guaranteed holding with zero backlash

A new brake from ZF Industrial has a patented mechanism which ensures very fast engagement and disengagement times, guaranteed holding with zero backlash, and no loss of holding torque with wear.

ZF reckons its FBM series brakes will provide an ideal solution in servo applications where a stopping device of some sort is employed to provide a holding accident.

There are ten models in the FBM series, with torque ratings from 2.5Nm to 70Nm. They can be used on servomotors across the speed range from 10,000rpm down to 6,000rpm, depending upon the motor size. They operate on a nominal 24, 100 or 200V DC and offer the flexibility for either external or internal fitment.
