To control the deceleration of moving parts for small and medium powers, the best solution is the combination of a brake disc with one or more calipers.
Simplex caliper brakes are suitable for the most various applications thanks to a wide range of models including manual, pneumatic or hydraulic brakes; also available in the failsafe version (spring applied) to guarantee plants safety during maintenance and/or in emergencies.
Simplex manual caliper bakes are manually activated thanks to the operator intervention and they are used in all industrial applications where the pneumatic or hydraulic supply may be absent. This type of brakes is normally selected to allow static, maneuvering or tensioning braking.
Simplex pneumatic caliper brakes are designed for industrial applications where air pressure is required to activate the braking system.
The positive pneumatic caliper brakes are therefore activated from the air pressure, which can vary between 0 and 6 bar modifying the braking force in turn. Once the power required is reached it will remain constant, regardless the brake pads wear. The negative pneumatic caliper brakes exploit, instead, the spring actions to activate braking system in a very short time.
Hydraulic caliper brakes have been designed for industrial applications using hydraulic supply. In their negative version they work by springs activation.
