Industrial Brakes

Electro-Thrust Brakes - Electro-Thrust Shoe Brakes

The Electro-Thrust Shoe Brakes have been in service for over 10 years. AISE sizes range from 8 inches in diameter up to 30 inch diameter  wheels. Torque values range from 100 foot-pounds to 9,000  ft./lbs.! We also manufacture a line of non-AISE rated brakes. The brakes are spring set for fail-safe operation with an electro-hydraulic actuator that overcomes a setting spring and releases the brake. The actuator is stroked by means of applying power, either AC or DC, to an integral motor attached to a twin cavity housing. The housing is filled with fluid and as the motor spins it creates fluid motion. As the fluid travels through the housing it applies upward pressure to a piston that overcomes the setting spring to release the brake. Cutting power to the motor reverses this function and the spring then gently sets the brake.

The Series ET style of shoe brakes are spring set and electrically released by a continuously rated, sealed electrohydraulic actuator. This brake provides smooth brake setting due to the response of the actuator. This inherent cushion effect is desirable for many brake applications. Rugged construction makes this brake suitable for steel mill cranes, container cranes, stacker reclaimers, lock and dam gates, and other heavy-duty applications.

Hydraulic Brakes - Hydraulic Shoe Brakes

The hydraulic shoe brakes are spring released and hydraulically set for controlled stopping.  Applications such as indoor and outdoor bridge cranes are just some of the examples. These proven high performance brake systems are tough, reliable and provide trouble free service. Brake wheel sizes ranging from 6 inches to 18 inches are available. Brakes are available either with standard hydraulic setting, setting with parking feature or with air powered hydraulic operation. The powered systems may be direct or remote controlled. Air remote control, hydraulic remote control, and electric remote control allow the customer the flexibility to satisfy most requirements.     
 
Gemco Industrial Brakes stop virtually any type of industrial machine. Applications such as steel mills, indoor and outdoor bridge cranes, gantries, heavy-duty cranes, high-duty cycle cranes, lock and dam projects, stacker reclaimers, and commercial laundry equipment are just some of the uses for Gemco Industrial Brakes.  These field proven high performance brake systems were originally designed and built by Westinghouse and Wagner Industrial Brakes. They are tough, reliable and provide extended, trouble free service. That's because they are designed and built to exacting specifications. For more than 40 years, Gemco has been an acknowledged leader in brake system technology for heavy-duty industrial applications.

Magnetic Brakes - Magnetic DC Shoe Brakes

The magnetic DC shoe brakes are spring set and electrically released. The brake is set when 230 VDC power is removed from the brakes coil(s). The type TM brakes electrical mechanism consists of one or two DC magnets. As power is introduced to the coils it creates an electro-magnetic field that brings the coils together to release the brake. Cutting power to the coils allows the spring to extend back to its normal state and sets the brake.  Shunt or series coils are available and rated for continuous or intermittent duty ratings. We also offer single point adjustment on brakes 8 inches in wheel diameter or larger. This speeds up the brake installation and shoe lining wear adjustment by a single point adjusting feature.  Brake wheel diameters of 41/2" to 30" are available, and are AISE rated.   Rectifiers are available for AC operation.

Solenoid Brakes - Solenoid AC Shoe Brakes

The solenoid AC shoe brakes are spring set and electrically released. The brake is set when power is removed from the brake solenoid assembly. Solenoid assemblies can be powered by 115 VAC thru 575 VAC, single phase. Brake wheel diameters ranging from 4 1/2 inches to 10 inches are available.
