In this video, W.C. Branham's Chad Randleman demonstrates how to replace the friction pads on your caliper disc brake.
In this video W.C. Branham’s Chad Randleman answers some of the most common questions we receive regarding right angle gearboxes.
In this video blog, our experts introduce you to Lanamatic - a Swiss manufacturer of pneumatic rodless cylinders. Through a private label arrangement, Lanamtic products can be found in the United States within the DURATRK label here at Branham.
Fail-safe brakes are brakes that, by nature, are always engaged. They commonly consist of spring applied brakes which are actuated by a stack of belleville disc springs. When pressurized, by either pneumatic or hydraulic pressure, the spring stack is retracted and the brake is opened or disengaged.
To operate properly, wind turbines need two types of brakes — one to control the rotor speed to protect the system, and another to keep the turbine facing into the wind. W.C. Branham Sales Manager Pete Wold looks at your options for the two types of wind turbine brakes in this edition of Solutions in Motion.
W.C. Branham President and CEO Troy Branham introduces our newest product line, OVLPRO™ Low Profile Pneumatic Cylinders, in this edition of Solutions in Motion.
Like many of our products, OVLPRO™ was originally designed from a specific customer request: looking for a low profile, compact, high reciprocating cylinder for a specific application. We offer OVLPRO™ in three bore sizes: 25mm, 32mm, and 44mm bore.
What are the differences between double live sided fixed mount caliper disc brakes and single live sided floating mount caliper disc brakes? Those are the two options available when specifying and designing in the caliper disc brake for an application.
Many models are available in both options and you can choose between the two depending on your mounting preference. Chad Ranldleman, W.C. Branham's VP Engineering and General Manager, discusses your options in this edition of Solutions in Motion.
W.C. Branham President and CEO Troy Branham introduces our pneumatic actuator line, specifically our new DURATRK™ slot tube style rodless band cylinders in this edition of Solutions in Motion.
We make the DURATRK™ product in six bore sizes, ranging from 18mm bore diameter up to 63mm. We cut our tube profiles in very small increments all the way up to 21 feet, depending upon a specific customer need. Our standard DTS model has an integrated piston yoke assembly, ideally for those applications where there's a light to moderate cylinder load requirement that the cylinder must move.
What are the options available to you with friction materials when selecting your caliper disc brake? The main three attributes to consider when selecting that material are the material's wear rate, the coefficient of friction, and its energy capacity.
W.C. Branham VP of Engineering and General Manager Chad Randleman explains the coefficient of friction in this edition of Solutions in Motion.
