The spring applied "ROBA-servostop" safety brake works according to the so-called "fail-safe" principle, and therefore provides maximum safety even in the event of a power failure or emergency stop. As a result, it is predestined for application in the gravity loaded axes of machine tools, handling gantries or assembly equipment.
The spring applied ROBA-servostop safety brake permits ten times the load-mass ratio in comparison to permanent magnetic brakes.
Normally, servomotors are fitted with PMBs, which are relatively cost-effective and provide performance density. However, this cost advantage is diminishing, due to the fact that magnetic materials have become extremely expensive. The drive specialist therefore now sees a positive opportunity for the safety brake. It is less sensitive than the PMB, given that permanent magnets can lose magnetic force when subjected to the often extremely high temperatures of up to 120°C in today's motors, which can then lead to a drop in braking torques.
When the spring applied safety brake is closed, the rotor with the friction linings is held between the armature disk and the brake plate. If the installed magnetic coil is energized, then the magnetic field pulls the armature disk against the force of the springs to the coil carrier, thus releasing the brake. The servobrake works safely and reliably thanks to this fail-safe principle.
The ROBA-servostop permits ten times the load-mass ratio: Normally an order of magnitude of 3:1 or smaller is selected for servodrives for favourable regulation characteristics and high dynamic load-mass ratios from load to motor. The ROBA-servostop permits load-mass ratios of 30:1 and more thanks to its high permitted friction work and friction powers. Whilst permanent magnetic brakes tend to cause a sharp rise in braking torques under such conditions, use of the ROBA-servostop avoids any damage to the drive line.
The high performance capability and low wear, as well as the simple installation, are further advantages of the ROBA-servostop, which can be integrated into the B bearing side of the motor without any restrictions.Contact:

Whether you call it effervescent, fizzy, or sparkling, carbonated water is making a comeback as a beverage. Aside from quenching thirst, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have discovered a new use for these "bubbly" concoctions that will have major impact on the manufacturer of the world's thinnest, flattest, and one most useful materials -- graphene.
As graphene's popularity grows as an advanced "wonder" material, the speed and quality at which it can be manufactured will be paramount. With that in mind,...
Physicists at the University of Bonn have managed to create optical hollows and more complex patterns into which the light of a Bose-Einstein condensate flows. The creation of such highly low-loss structures for light is a prerequisite for complex light circuits, such as for quantum information processing for a new generation of computers. The researchers are now presenting their results in the journal Nature Photonics.
Light particles (photons) occur as tiny, indivisible portions. Many thousands of these light portions can be merged to form a single super-photon if they are...
For the first time, scientists have shown that circular RNA is linked to brain function. When a RNA molecule called Cdr1as was deleted from the genome of mice, the animals had problems filtering out unnecessary information – like patients suffering from neuropsychiatric disorders.
While hundreds of circular RNAs (circRNAs) are abundant in mammalian brains, one big question has remained unanswered: What are they actually good for? In the...
An experimental small satellite has successfully collected and delivered data on a key measurement for predicting changes in Earth's climate.
The Radiometer Assessment using Vertically Aligned Nanotubes (RAVAN) CubeSat was launched into low-Earth orbit on Nov. 11, 2016, in order to test new...
A study led by scientists of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg presents evidence of the coexistence of superconductivity and “charge-density-waves” in compounds of the poorly-studied family of bismuthates. This observation opens up new perspectives for a deeper understanding of the phenomenon of high-temperature superconductivity, a topic which is at the core of condensed matter research since more than 30 years. The paper by Nicoletti et al has been published in the PNAS.
Since the beginning of the 20th century, superconductivity had been observed in some metals at temperatures only a few degrees above the absolute zero (minus...
