New Micro Brakes from Miki Pulley Are Ideal for Small Precise Equipment Applications

Plymouth, Minnesota: Fast braking response in small, precision torque applications are the primary benefit of Miki Pulley Micro Brakes. Micro Brakes provide a solution for small motion control applications requiring high-performance braking.
Miki Pulley’s ultra-compact brake design features a stator with an integrated mounting flange, proprietary composite friction liner, and armature complete with ring plate spring and hub. With a field-proven design, Miki Pulley Micro Brakes halt rotation mechanically by utilizing an electromagnetic field to connect friction surfaces, creating mechanical resistance. With a fast response, the brake’s armature engages the stator when the coil is energized. A constant-force plate spring transfers torque to the rotating brake body halting all motion.
Additional features include quiet operation, high holding torque for its size, space-saving design configuration, long service life, stable and reliable braking power.
Miki Pulley Micro Brakes are also easy to install and require no maintenance. They are available in three armature assembly options, depending on application requirements.
Typical applications include ATMs, office copiers, weighing and packaging equipment, optical mechanisms, paper binding mechanisms, and others.
