As automation continues to accelerate, the need to hold equipment in place in the case of a power failure, or for positioning, continues to grow. For these varied applications, Ogura Industrial would like to highlight six different styles of holding brakes. Representing around 120 standard models, some key features of these brake families are: brake diameters down to 10 millimeters for micro motors, thin series brakes for compact servo motor applications, mechanically adjustable torque holding brakes and permanent magnet brakes that have electrically adjustable holding torque.
Ogura brake coil designs allow for over-excitation, contributing to small size and low energy consumption. This is especially useful on battery-powered equipment and/or mobile robots. All brakes are designed to reliably handle the equivalent torque load of the motor that it pairs with dimensionally.
Standard coil voltage is 24 V, but other design voltages are possible. Brakes can also come with bare lead wires or can come with custom supplied electrical connectors.
Ogura has been producing clutches and brakes since 1938. Over that time, they have developed over 7,000 different models of clutches and brakes. Although Ogura primarily produces electromagnetic clutches and brakes, they also produce magnetic particle, mechanical, pneumatic, hydraulic and a variety of specialty products. Ogura is the world’s largest manufacturer of electromagnetic clutches and brakes. Current manufacturing capacity is over 30 million units per year. To provide localized support, they have manufacturing plants spread throughout the world in Asia, the Americas, and Europe. Most manufacturing facilities are ISO recognized and conform to the ISO 9001:2015, ISO 14001:2015, and IATF 16949:2016.
