Twiflex Limited has recently introduced the VCS MK 4 caliper brake, its newest model in a long line of reliable spring-applied, hydraulically-released caliper brakes.
The VCS MK 4 is designed for a wide array of applications including hoists, conveyor drives, cranes, ship loaders, wind turbines, and drill rigs in industries including mining, steel, pulp and paper, and marine.
These technologically advanced brakes have been engineered to provide a 50% increase in pad area. The units also feature increased service factors, modular construction for easy assembly and maintenance, precision monitoring options, as well as improved sealing and full compatibility with existing VCS mounts and controlled braking systems.
As with other modular brakes from Twiflex, the brake comes as a standard two-module design. The brake is provided as a complete unit with two pre-fitted brake pads. Additional items such as mounting bolts (tie rods), optional finishes and monitoring switches are available options.
