Caliper brakes

RFT Caliper safety disc brakes are positioned and direct-acting on the flanged wheel of the rope drum. The brakes offer additional protection against load crashes. Also in case of gear box damages and/or power failure.

In combination with the "Thruster TURBO Control System" especially for service brakes operated electro-hydraulically, simultaneous reaction times of both brake systems will be achieved. Therefore, abrupt and strong impacts into the gear box will be avoided. In addition, emergency load lowerings can be directly realized with the caliper safety brake.
