Force Control Industries, Inc: Double C-face coupler brake

Force Control Industries’ Double C-face Coupler Brake includes double c-faces and mates to a standard motor, replacing special brake motors that often involve long lead times and high costs, and reducing inventory and maintenance costs for palletizers and other packaging machinery.

The Double C-face Coupler Brake mounts on the drive end of a standard C-Face motor, replacing the commonly used motor brakes mounted on the back of a special motor designed with a mounting flange and extended shaft on the fan end of the motor. Mounting the double C-Face brake between the reducer and C-Face motor allows a standard C-face motor to be used.   Since many plants stock C-face motors for other applications, this eliminates the purchasing and stocking of both a brake motor, and a standard C-face motor.
