Pneumatic Tension Brakes

Dover brakes are an integral part of a high-performance unwind packege. All our brakes feature a limited travel piston that never scratches the disc, ductile disc construction, and expanded disc surface for rapid heat dissipation.

Our asbestos-free friction pads are available in several coefficients of friction. No tools are required to change the friction pads, making brake maintenance quick and "hassle free".

HEAVY-DUTY DUAL DISC PNEUMATIC BRAKES

Dover brakes are an integral part of a high-performance unwind package. All brakes feature a limited travel piston that never scratches the disc, ductile iron disc construction, and expanded disc surface for rapid heat dissipation.

Our asbestos-free friction pads are available in several coefficients of friction. No tools are required to change the friction pads, making brake maintenance quick and "hassle free".

  • Heavy-duty brake for unwind applications
  • Wide torque range
  • Large heat dissipation capacity
  • Hassle-free friction pad removal and installation--no tools required

60 SERIES DUAL DISC BRAKE

Same high-performance as Dover's Heavy-Duty dual disc brakes, but smaller and with a lower torque range. Easy to install and use, the 60 series brake was designed for lower tension unwind application in the converting, printing, composite, wire and filament industries. The brake can be configured for use with one cylinder or up to six cylinders.

  • Torque range from 1 lb-in. with one cylinder up to 1,000 lb-in. with six cylinders
  • Cylinders can be actuated individually
  • A range of pad friction coefficients is available to suit the application
  • Replace worn pads in seconds
