Force Control Industries plans to feature MagnaShear motor brakes Sept. 13-15 at MINExpo International 2021.

The motor brakes will be showcased at Booth 25108 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

According to Force Control Industries, MagnaShear motor brakes are ideal for mining applications where the motor is stopped, or reversed, each cycle such as loaders/unloaders, conveyors, railcar spotters and dumpers, and overland and internal tripper cars.

The motor brakes are available to accommodate a range of applications, Force Control says. Spring set torque ratings from 3 to 1250 ft.-pounds are available. Also, the motor brakes can be sized to the correct torque value independent of the motor frame size or horsepower by changing the combination of springs and friction discs.

MagnaShear motor brakes feature a quick-mount feature for quick and easy mounting to drive motors in NEMA frame sizes 56 to 449, or some IEC frame motors. They are shipped ready to install, the company adds, with no assembly or adjustments required.

MagnaShear motor brakes can be furnished as a complete motor and brake assembly, or to mount on a machine frame or other special mounting configuration.
