Floating caliper brakes as a compact type are executed as a one-sided actuator design. They serve for generating a brake force on a brake disk in order to decelerate a plant’s movement resp. stop it or keep it at standstill. Floating caliper brakes operate free from axial forces. They prevent damages on the drive train reliably, even if there is an incorrect setting or an error in the installation.
Connection immediately on the gearbox is possible.
