With the "KTR-STOP PB" series, we are expanding our range of industrial disc brakes to include the small braking force range from 0 to 31 kN. The caliper brakes are designed as a modular system and consist of two brake levers and one actuator each. These can be flexibly combined with each other and are therefore highly versatile.

New: pneumatic brake system KTR-STOP PB

We have extended our portfolio of brakes by a pneumatic caliper brake.

The KTR-STOP PB can be used as an operating or holding brake being operated either actively or passively. It is designed as a construction kit system and available in seven sizes with braking forces of up to 31 kN. Main applications are general drive technology, automation, packaging machinery and test bench technology.

KTR-STOP PB consists of two brake levers that are swivel-mounted in the caliper housing. On the one end of the brake levers there are the brake pads with brake shoes and retaining springs. On the other end there is the brake cylinder. The return springs and the splash plate are mounted on this side, too. Clamping of the brake is based on the principle of „action equals reaction“ so that one brake cylinder is required at a time to apply the brake.

Modular system enables many possible combinations

Some sizes can be provided with a sensor for checking the braking condition (brake released or applied). Depending on the application, the pneumatic caliper brake is provided with different brake pads. Here KTR is in a position to select between various compounds. If requested, the wear of pad can be monitored by a wear sensor in the brake pads.

„Due to the construction kit system there are many possible combinations“, Michelle Sandmann who is responsible for the new brake system at KTR explains. „This allows us to respond flexibly to the diverse customer needs.“

KTR-STOP PB is selected and assembled in the KTR Competence Center for Brake Systems“ in Schloß Holte-Stukenbrock/East Westphalia. Here is where KTR bundles its activities relating to brakes under the umbrella of KTR Brake Systems GmbH. Meanwhile the portfolio of KTR’s subsidiary company comprises three different brake systems with different characteristics: pneumatic, hydraulic or electromechanical.

We will be presenting the caliper brake for the first time at this year's HMI in Hanover, Hall 6, Stand B57.
