GE Industrial Brakes – General Electric

GE Industrial brakes are used for holding, stopping or retarding industrial equipment like:

  • Cranes
  • Hoists
  • Conveyors
  • Movable Bridges
  • Rolling Mill Drives
  • Overhead Doors
  • Turn Tables
  • Conveyors
  • Machine Tools
  • Elevators
  • Printing Presses
  • Deck Machinery

These GE brakes respond quickly to prevent the load from drifting or coasting after the power is cut off. The GE brake units are electrically released by a solenoid in the smaller sizes and by a thrustor mechanism in the larger ratings.
