Jan. 13, 2015 – Nexen Group says its latest safety component, spring engaged/air released safety brakes, are necessary for safeguarding personnel, machinery and processes.

Designed to stop and hold devices, such as direct or redundant brakes, the safety brakes are ideal for lockout/tagout and emergency stop situations. According to Tony Kliber, Nexen engineering director, the brakes can also prevent damage to machines or the process in an unplanned power loss. Suitable applications include industrial production, packaging machinery, conveying systems, machine tools and food production.
