Altra Industrial Motion brands, Svendborg Brakes, Twiflex Ltd. and Warner Electric have once again attended this year’s WindEnergy exhibition, the world’s leading trade fair for the wind energy industry. Svendborg Brakes is well known within the industry for its reliable, high quality braking systems. It took the opportunity to launch a new Yaw Brake Lifting & Installation Tool, which helps to reduce downtime by speeding up installation and maintenance procedures.

Svendborg Brakes is a global market leader in the wind energy sector for both yaw and rotor braking solutions. In addition to its wide range of brake systems that have been designed specifically for the wind energy market, it offers a full service which includes design, installation, maintenance and repair. By working in partnership with its customers, Svendborg Brakes is able to ensure that its brake systems continue working reliably throughout their entire service life – preventing unwanted downtime and maximising the production of every wind farm that they support.

The new Yaw Brake Lifting & Installation Tool (LBS 120), which was launched at the exhibition, enables technicians to work on brakes at installation height, which makes installation, service and repair operations faster and simpler – reducing service time by as much as 50% in some applications. Svendborg Brakes also demonstrated its new, green brake pads and had expert service technicians on hand to talk to end-users about the Svendborg Brake Service Solutions.

Twiflex Ltd. and Warner Electric were also on the stand, demonstrating the breadth of capability available from the Altra Industrial Motion group. The Twiflex MX range of caliper brakes includes a feature that ensures even pad wear for maximum wear life; a self-adjusting feature ensures that a constant air-gap between the pad and the disc is maintained as the pad wears. A selection of Warner Electric’s lightweight, electrically released PK and ERS brakes were also on show.
