FAET Electromagnetic Brake

FAET Electromagnetic Brake

The FAET electromagnetic brake, is an innovative solution that provides precise control of unwinding tension in industrial applications.

Its ability to dynamically adjust braking force, together with its thermal resistance, makes it an optimal choice for demanding environments.

Whether in the paper, textile or cable industry, the FAET brake plays a crucial role in ensuring high quality and energy-efficient production.



What is the FAET electromagnetic brake?


The FAET electromagnetic brake is an innovative solution designed for applications requiring precise control of the unwind tension, such as in the processing of paper, tissue or cable reels.

This positive electromagnetic brake is current driven and offers versatile control over the resistance to shaft rotation. In this article, we will explore in detail how the FAET brake and its benefits in industrial applications.

Operation of FAET electromagnetic brake

The FAET brake consists of two main components: the armature with friction material and the rotor, which includes the armature, the radiator and the hub.

Its operation is based on the application of a variable voltage of 0 to 24 V direct current. When this voltage is applied, the brake coil creates a magnetic field proportional to the voltage, thus allowing the braking torque to be precisely regulated.

This tension control is essential in unwinding applications, where maintaining a constant tension is crucial for quality processing.

Cuando se suministra una tensión continua a la bobina, se genera un campo magnético que atrae el inducido. Esto, a su vez, ejerce resistencia a la rotación del eje, lo que frena el movimiento.

In other words, the FAET electromagnetic brake acts as an active voltage controller, adjusting its braking force according to the needs of the application.

Unlocking and technical characteristics

When the brake is de-energised, it automatically disengages, allowing the axle to rotate freely.

This feature is essential in applications that require frequent changes in unwind tension.

The FAET brake is designed to operate efficiently in industrial environments where heat generation is common due to continuous use.

To address this challenge, the brake is equipped with a high-performance aluminium radiator that contributes significantly to heat dissipation. This ensures that the brake maintains consistent performance even under demanding working conditions.

Precise control

The brake allows precise control of the unwinding tension, ensuring high quality production.

Highlights of the FAET electromagnetic brake


  • Torque regulation capability through voltage: One of the most remarkable features of the FAET brake is its ability to regulate the braking torque by means of the supplied voltage. By varying the voltage from 0 to 24 V DC, it is possible to precisely adjust the resistance to shaft rotation. This is essential in applications where a constant unwind voltage must be maintained to ensure process quality.
  • Good heat dissipation: The FAET brake is designed with thermal efficiency in mind. It incorporates an aluminium radiator that contributes significantly to the dissipation of heat generated during operation. This feature allows the brake to maintain consistent performance even under continuous or demanding operating conditions.
  • Reduced weight: The FAET brake construction focuses on weight optimisation, making it a lightweight option. This is beneficial in applications where minimal system weight is required, such as in mobile machinery or in applications where equipment load is a critical factor.
  • Minimal inertia: The minimal inertia of the FAET brake is an attribute that makes it particularly suitable for applications where precise and agile motion control is required. The low inertia allows a quick response to stress variations and ensures fast adjustment of the braking torque.
