Twiflex launches new conveyor brake

Twiflex has launched a new disc brake for mining and conveyor applications, featuring large pads and IP65 protection and aiming to serve high speed conveyor drives in mining and quarrying applications.

Steve Powell, product manager for Twiflex, explained: “The brake is installed between the motor and gearbox to protect the motor against overspeed conditions when there is a mechanical failure in the drive.

“The VBS is extremely easy to install and is fully interchangeable with most brakes on the market which makes swap-over extremely quick.”
