Altra Industrial Motion, a designer, producer and marketer of electromechanical power transmission products, has introduced the MCB series caliper brakes from the company's subsidiary, Twiflex Ltd.

The brakes are designed with special corrosion protection to withstand the harsh marine environment of offshore platforms, where they are ideal for both static holding and emergency stopping of AC and DC draw works and for rugged duty on platform cranes and hoists.

Six models of the MCB series brakes, ranging in braking force from 30 kilonewtons (kN) to 200 kN, are designed to operate seamlessly with all common, primary and secondary braking systems, including electrical, mechanical and hydrodynamic retarding devices.

Supplied either as a positive, direct-acting brake or a spring-applied, hydraulic-released version, each brake comprises a caliper body with a choice of actuators fitted between the arms. The brake is adjusted to fit a disc up to 361.42-inch thickness and 1,100-inch minimum diameter.
