 Hydraulic Caliper Disc Brakes SF Series Bubenzer North American Sales company Nasco


SF Brakes:
The high capacity of these brakes makes them particularly suitable as secondary emergency brakes on hoist gears and on downhill conveyor
Other applications are possible in material handling, requiring power and compact design in either direction of rotation, particularly in replacing band brakes
Brakes for use in high duty cycle applications are to be specifically indicated prior to the technical selection procedure.
SF – Hydraulic Caliper Disc Brakes SF Series

BSC Series:

The high capacity of BSC Series brakes makes them particularly suitable as service or secondary emergency brakes, e.g. on hoists, slewing drives and belt conveyors. Other applications are in material handling, mechanical engineering and wind turbine industry, where high holding forces are required independent of the direction of rotation within limited space.

In response to requirements to simplify the maintenance of industrial brakes and at the same time to increase their operational safety, PINTSCH BUBENZER offers a retrofitable, compact electronic status indication system to be integrated into the brake as an additional safety device.
Main Features:
Industrial Display with 4 rows of 20 characters for indication of measurement data and error messages
High ambient temperature range – 20°C to +70°C
Protection class IP66
Internal keypad for parameter change
Up to 5 m cable length from sensor to electronic box. (Option)
Profibus (CMB2-SB only). All scaled measures signals and error bits are transferred by bus system to the main control PLC. No analogue inputs in control PLC are required

Pintsch Bubenzer Hub with Brake Disc Type N and NX
Hubs with a flanged brake disc (N),  hubs with a brake disc (not flanged, type NX).
Applications: All drives, where the brake is not located between motor and gearbox, like brake installation on the second gear box shaft or at the motor end shaft
Pintsch Bubenzer Flexible Couplings with Brake Drums – Type B-EBT and B-GBT

Applications: These couplings are for use in machinery subjected to high dynamic load.

Damping of peak torques and vibrations are further reasons for the use of this coupling type. The standard material of the elastic intermediate ring is suitable for a temperature range of -20 ̊C to +80 ̊c

Applications:  SOS snag overload system – first non-hydraulic snag protection for container cranes. It eliminates the danger of structural damage starting at the motor, which is beside the brake disc the major source of snag inertia load. In a snag overload case the Malmedie Safety Coupling (MSC) separates the motor drives and their high mass inertia from the gearbox instantly. PINTSCH BUBENZER safety brakes (SF) immediately catch the load and avoid a loss of rope. LiTec® operating brake discs reduce the inertia additionally.
