Clamping forces of up to 203 kN
Short reaction periods subject to the short distance between brake pad and brake disc as well as the low oil volume
Big pad surface resulting in small surface pressure, low wear of pads and low temperature
Low maintenance expenses because of a few mobile components only
Drain ports avoid leakages on the brake pad
Brake pads available from various materials
Easy replacement of brake pads
Suitable for rough ambient conditions
Brake caliper M-D is designed as a fixed caliper brake. This brake can be designed with an air gap control to keep the air gap and thus the reaction time of the brake constant. The option to wear off the pads fully allows to permit long maintenance intervals and optimize the operating expenses.
This brake is a typical service brake which is used with low torques. All features of this brake are aiming at operating reliably even under extreme environmental conditions while generating low operating expenses subject to its design.
