MagnaShear Motor Brake

Force Control Industries has introduced the MagnaShear motor brake which uses oil shear technology to lengthen service life in demanding applications.

Magna Shear 300 11297183

The MagnaShear motor brake from Force Control Industries employs oil shear technology, providing longer service life even in demanding applications like the frequent start/stop cycles seen on cranes, hoists, winches, and other mobile material handling equipment. 

  • Oil shear technology transmits torque between lubricated surfaces thereby eliminating wear on friction surfaces
  • Fluid recirculation system dissipates heat, eliminating heat build-up which is the most common problem in dry braking systems
  • Elimination of wear significantly increases service life and virtually removes need for adjustment which also elongates maintenance intervals
  • Well suited for applications where motor is reversed each cycle 
  • Oil shear technology provides smooth “cushioned” stop, reducing shock to the drive system and further extending service life of downstream components 
  • Totally enclosed design makes brakes impervious to moisture, dirt and dust 
  • Spring set torque ratings from 3 to 1,250 ft./lbs. are available
  • Can be sized to correct torque independent of motor frame size or horsepower
  • “Quick Mount” feature enables quick and easy mounting to drive motors in NEMA frame sizes 56 to 449
  • Available pre-mounted on a motor for severe-duty applications
  • Can be furnished to fit NEMA or IEC frame motor, as a complete motor and brake assembly, or to mount on a machine frame or other special mounting configuration 
  • Features seal integrity for harsh and washdown environments
