MBR (Mechanical Brake Roller) incorporates
a speed controller which uses the centrifugal force generated in the arm as the
gear amplifies roller rotation with load transportation.
Using no power source and relying on the force of gravity, MBR is the ultimate energy-saving brake roller.
This mechanism not only saves the operator’s labor but also allows the load to slow down gently without damage to it.
MBR can be used for various purposes including low-speed conveyance or prevention of uncontrollable operation in self-propelled conveyors, and speed reduction before a turnaround or transfer machine.
Use the special mounting bracket for a small-diameter roller.
The system which combines MBRs with an automatic load separator assures higher efﬁciency.
**The minimum roller width (RW) is 135 mm (MBRs can be manufactured with sizes in millimeters.)
For roller widths less than 230 mm, consult us. Snap-on attachment for roller width of 200 mm or less is unavailable.
Please select the roller whose withstand load is twice or three
times the weight of the load, considering the surface condition of the load and
an impact which may be generated when the load is placed on the conveyor.
Note: MBRs should be used within a temperature range of -5 to 40˚C.
For safe use, be sure to let us know if your initial operating conditions are changed.
Handling caution:In order to avoid damage to the precision mechanism, take enough care not to drop or strike the MBR.
