MagnaShear™ motor breaks employ oil shear technology for long-service life in applications like the frequent start/stop cycles seen on conveyors, cranes and other material handling equipment. Oil shear technology transmits torque between lubricated surfaces, thereby eliminating wear on friction surfaces.  A fluid recirculation system dissipates heat, eliminating heat build-up, which is the most common problem in dry braking systems.  Elimination of the wear increases service life and virtually eliminates adjustment, which also elongates maintenance intervals.  Product feature quick-mount features for mounting to drive motors in NEMA frame sizes 56 to 449.  Brakes are shipped ready to install with no assembly or adjustments required. They are also available pre-mounted on a motor for severe-duty applications. Brakes can be furnished to fit a NEMA or IEC frame motor, as a complete motor and brake assembly, or to mount on a machine frame or other special mounting configuration.
