Force Control Industries, Inc. (Fairfield, OH) has developed a double C-face coupler brake that mounts on the drive end of a standard C-Face motor, replacing the commonly used motor brakes mounted on the back of a special motor designed with a mounting flange and extended shaft on the fan end of the motor. Mounting the Force Control double C-Face brake between the reducer and C-Face motor allows a standard C-face motor to be used.   Since many plants stock C-face motors for other applications, this eliminates the purchasing and stocking both of a brake motor, and a standard C-face motor, simplifying inventory and reducing costs.  Applications include palletizers, packaging machinery, airline baggage handling systems, concrete block manufacturing, cranes, and more. In addition to providing a savings on inventory costs for motors, the use of Force Control Oil Shear brakes also:

  • Reduces maintenance costs. 
  • Mount between the reducer input and the motor, allowing the use of a standard C-face motor. 
  • Eliminates the need for a special motor with a longer lead time and higher price. 
  • Eliminates the need for adjustments which are common for dry braking systems.
