Twiflex offers complete hydraulic brake packages



Mar. 15, 2018 – Twiflex now has compact hydraulic brake packages that aim to provide single-source convenience for a range of industrial applications. Standard packages are available with three different spring applied, hydraulically released brake models with braking force ratings ranging from 6.8 kN to 119 kN.

Providing “superior performance,” Twiflex says these brake packages meet the static holding and stopping duty requirements of various applications. Combining Twiflex spring applied, hydraulically released caliper brakes with the LCS hydraulic power unit mounted on a custom fabricated base/pedestal, these units can fit into applications where space is limited, explains Twiflex. Standard brakes are available in MXSH (max. braking force: 14.3 kN), VCS (max. braking force: 62 kN) and VKSD (max braking force: 119 kN) Disc Brake Caliper Packages, while all three packages are shipped complete with a hand pump, terminal box and pressure gauge.
