Securing loads, protecting buildings and machinery: limit switches, spring applied brakes and disc brakes for cranes and hoisting gears
Our reliable and robust operating and emergency stop brakes are used to brake safely loads on hoists, trolleys, and winches. Their convincing features are their high, constant braking torques, both electromagnetic and hydraulic, little maintenance and storage work, low space requirements, and very short, stable engaging times.
As a measure to protect equipment and machinery, hoisting gears must be limited at their top and bottom cutoff points. The gear limit switches from Stromag provide for this reliable cutoff and ideally are attached directly to the drum.
Application fields are port, building, gantry, slewing, mobile, steel mill, and special cranes.
