If spring-applied brakes are expected to function optimally and safely, they must be checked and maintained at regular intervals. INTORQ spring-applied brakes are wear-resistant and designed for long maintenance intervals. Friction linings, teeth between brake rotor and hub, as well as the brake mechanism are nevertheless subject to physical wear depending on their functionality.
In order to speed up inspection and maintenance work, these steps can be carried out together with other facility maintenance work. This work can often be carried out much faster if the brakes are easily accessible. This must be considered when installing the drives in the facility.
Malfunctions, breakdowns or facility damage can occur when regular maintenance is not carried out. To optimize maintenance, every application requires a maintenance strategy adapted to the operating conditions and loads of the particular brake. (The QR code on our brakes takes you directly to the correct documents, so that you can read the operating instructions to order spare parts.)
