Leading specialist heavy brakes company, Australian Brake Controls
(ABC) will distribute industrial brakes and clutches manufactured by Coremo Ocmea.
Backed by more than 50 years of experience in manufacturing brakes and clutches for industrial marine, oil and gas, mining and theatrical stage applications, Coremo Ocmea offers a diverse product range for use in robust and reliable precision equipment ranging from conveyors, packaging lines and mining draglines to lifting systems, tension controls and hoists.
According to ABC Industrial Brakes Division Engineer and Designer, Mr Gerry Lewis, one of the major product lines to benefit from Australian Brake Control’s complete engineered braking solutions will be Coremo hydraulic spring-applied failsafe brakes, used in bulk material conveyors on main drives, pulleys and take-up winches.
Featuring proven Coremo strengths such as reliability, ease of use and maintenance, long life and competitive pricing coupled with expanded availability through ABC, the Coremo hydraulic spring-applied brakes are robustly protected against corrosion in extreme resources environments while supplying high braking force within a very compact width of the brake body to ensure easy installation even with space constraints.
Mr Lewis points out that the quick and easy replacement of main wear parts is another advantage. The braking load is not transmitted to the piston and seals, ensuring long life for these components. He adds that reliability is further enhanced by proximity switches and pad wear indicators to ensure proper monitoring of the brake. The friction pad surface is properly sized to ensure high heat dissipation in gradual stops of the conveyor.
The ABC Industrial Brakes team focuses on industries such as mining and resources (including dragline, coal conveyor and crushing mill production and maintenance), overhead cranes and lifting machinery, paper manufacturing and converting machinery, quarries as well as road and rail transport equipment.
ABC’s strength in industrial braking systems lies in providing complete engineered braking solutions.
