The new Yaw Brake Lifting & Installation Tool (LBS 120), which was launched at the exhibition, enables technicians to work on brakes at installation height, which makes installation, service and repair operations faster and simpler – reducing service time by as much as 50% in some applications. Svendborg Brakes also demonstrated its new, green brake pads and had expert service technicians on hand to talk to end-users about the Svendborg Brake Service Solutions.

Twiflex Ltd. and Warner Electric were also on the stand, demonstrating the breadth of capability available from the Altra Industrial Motion group. The Twiflex MX range of caliper brakes includes a feature that ensures even pad wear for maximum wear life; a self-adjusting feature ensures that a constant air-gap between the pad and the disc is maintained as the pad wears. A selection of Warner Electric’s lightweight, electrically released PK and ERS brakes were also on show.
