Twiflex

TLB System

Twiflex’s Turning, Locking, and Braking System (TLB) integrates all three functions into a single system. This reduces costs, space required, and installation and maintenance time. The TLB system is fully designed and built in-house by Twiflex.

Turning torques up to 334,850 lb-ft (454,000 Nm)
Braking and locking torques up to 635,780 lb-ft (862,000 Nm)
Typical application: Marine propulsion

T40 Caliper Brakes

The Twiflex T40 brake is a split caliper, hydraulically applied design. The modules are mounted each side of a central mounting plate of the same thickness as the brake disc.

Braking force: up to 10,116 lb (45 kN)
Typical applications: Metals processing, conveyors, grinding mills, wind turbines, amusement rides, marine propulsion

VKSD Caliper Brakes

Twiflex VKSD modular brake calipers are spring applied, hydraulically released, and deliver greater braking force than the VCS. The two halves (modules) are mounted each side of a central mounting plate which is thicker than the brake disc. The VKSD-FL is a single module option, for use where space is limited or to accomodate axial disc float.

Braking force: 6,295 to 26,752 lb (28 to 119 kN)
Typical applications: Metals processing, conveyors, grinding mills, wind turbines, amusement rides, marine propulsion

VCS Caliper Brakes

The Twiflex VCS is a modular brake caliper which is spring applied and hydraulically released. The two halves (modules) are mounted each side of a central mounting plate of the same thickness as the brake disc. The VCS-FL is a single module option, for use where space is limited or to accomodate axial disc float.

Braking force: 5,620 to 13,938 lb (25 to 62 kN)
Typical applications: Metals processing, conveyors, grinding mills, wind turbines, amusement rides, marine propulsion

GMR Caliper Brakes

Twiflex GMR series caliper brakes are available with pneumatically, hydraulically, or spring applied thrusters. Normally one or two calipers are used per disc, ideally mounted at 3 or 9 o’clock, but more can be used on larger diameter discs.

Braking force: 1,348 to 8,093 lb (6 to 36 kN)
Typical applications: Metals processing, conveyors, grinding mills, wind turbines, amusement rides, marine propulsion

MX Caliper Brakes

Twiflex MX series brake calipers are available with pneumatic, manual, or spring applied thrusters. Failsafe spring applied options are available in pneumatic, hydraulic, or electrically released models. MX calipers feature a patented link mechanism which ensures uniform pad wear.

Braking force: 166 to 3,214 lb (0.74 to 14.3 kN)
Typical applications: Metals processing, conveyors, grinding mills, wind turbines, amusement rides, marine propulsion

MR Caliper Brakes

Twiflex MR series brake calipers are available in a variety of actuation choices. Brake disc diameter, air pressure, and number of calipers per disc can be varied to meet your application requirements. Calipers should ideally be mounted horizontally at the 3 or 9 o’clock position about the brake disc.

Braking force: 166 to 2,427 lb (0.74 to 10.8 kN)
Typical applications: Metals processing, conveyors, grinding mills, wind turbines, amusement rides, marine propulsion
