Hydraulic clamping and brake with failsafe function
KTR has developed a clamping system that is able to clamp both axial forces and torque. In emergency cases it is even able to brake. The passive clamping and brake system KTR-STOP NC is hydraulically driven and offers a multifunctional use.
The passive clamping and brake system KTR-STOP NC clamps the shafts from ball screw drives, linear drives or bar guides, holding tool tables and work pieces in place. The clamping increases the system stiffness and reduces vibrations ensuring an accurate manufacturing process. Additionally, the system offers a failsafe function: when unplanned loss of hydraulic pressure or an engine failure occurs the NC assumes the function of a brake and closes within milliseconds.
