Band brakes

RFT band brakes are calculated, dimensioned and manufactured according to customer requirements. Band brakes are dry friction brakes and find their application in the field of winches and lifting devices (e.g. oil drilling technology, anchor winches systems and metallurgy).

In combination with the “Thruster TURBO Control System”, band brakes achieve fast reaction and braking times, similar as disc brakes. Therefore band brakes operated electro-hydraulically can be used effectively on rope drums as holding / safety brakes in hoist systems.
