The precision of the packaging machines must be guaranteed with the use of brakes. If this brake needs to be held for a long time, the most appropriate are those that include FIP-type permanent magnets, since they only consume energy when they are released.
On a technical level, the magnet generates a magnetic field that attracts the induced plate and keeps the machine braked. At the moment in which current is given to the coil that is part of the brake, the force of the magnet is canceled and the machine goes unbraked.
In addition, the reduced dimensions of this type of brake make it a very versatile element within the catalog of electromagnetic brakes designed and manufactured by Eide.
