Brakes

A selection of both power-on and power-off brakes designed for use with our DC and BLDC motors guarantees precise stopping in safety-relevant applications.

bMotion – Modular Mechatronic Drive Solutions 

bMotion is a completely innovative modular drive platform of DC motors, gear boxes, brakes and encoders. Maximum modularity, easy combinability and a large number of predefined variants create drive solutions that are optimally tailored to customer needs.

Based on the platform‘s variety, the drive systems can be combined from already existing elements according to customer requirements. Thereby customer-specific developments can largely be replaced by configure-to-order. The expedited development does not mean a sacrifice in quality.
