Northwest Motion carries manual, electric, pneumatic, and hydraulic brake systems. Our experienced team can help you decide which is best for your application.
Manual Rail Clamps
Our manual rail clamps feature tool free opening and closing. They boast up to 50,000 maintenance free cycles.
Northwest Motion supplies both spring-applied safety brakes and energize to engage brakes. Energize to engage brakes apply torque when the brake is powered and open but the current is switched off. Reach out to one of our experts to find out what best suits your application.
Pneumatic clamps for all common profile rail guides. Energize to open through spring loaded energy storage with safe clamping in case of energy failure.
Our hydraulic brakes are perfect for vertical axes with demanding loads. Contact us to select a brake that best compliments your application.
Fast reaction time and pressureless safety function due to a low displacement volume and internal stress of the housing make our hydraulic clamps perfect for a variety of applications.
Electric spring applied safety brakes operate according to the fail-safe principle and are closed (brake on) in the de-energized state. Spring applied brakes are primarily designed as holing brakes but are also suitable for emergency stops and, depending on the design , can also be used for dynamic braking.
