Power-Off Engaged Brakes Ideal for Conveyor Applications

Explore the Latest Brake Models Available from Miki Pulley

 Plymouth, Minnesota: Miki Pulley announces successful multiple conveyor line applications for its latest BXW model power-off engaged brakes. These brakes are designed to halt a motorized conveyor roller when system power is dis-engaged.
The new BXW brakes are Spring Actuated Electromagnetic Brakes. This design provides reliable dynamic braking when conveyor power is disengaged. They also deliver excellent performance for longer-term holding requirements for staging, loading, and unloading conveyor operations.
 BXW brakes utilize internal compression springs to provide power-off, fail-safe braking. The primary moving part in this robust but simple brake design is the armature plate.  When actuated, the brake compression springs push the armature plate into the friction disc when power is disengaged.
This feature provides fail-safe braking and allows the brake to maintain position over long periods, preventing conveying systems from “coasting” when powered off.
Miki Pulley BXW Brakes function at full torque rating “right out of the box,” so no startup run-in is needed. These power-off engaged brakes to come in three models for single-use braking, holding, or combined braking and holding applications. BXW Brakes are ideal for small and large applications, including servo motors, depending on the size selected.
Additional features include:
  • Quiet operation
  • High holding torque
  • A space-saving design
  • Long service life stable
  • Reliable braking power
  • Manual release mechanisms
BXW Brake specifications (depending on model):
  • Brake torque 0.88ft/lb to 0.369 ft/lb (0.12Nm to 5.2Nm)
  • Brake outer diameter: 1.457” to 2.953” (37mm to 75mm) 
  • Ambient Temperature: 14 F ~ 104 F; (-10 ℃ ~ 40 ℃)
