Ogura Electromagnetic Spring Applied Brake for Stopping and Holding


Many brakes are available as holding brakes, but the SNB series from Ogura can both stop and hold. It uses an extra large friction disk to dissipate the energy required in stopping a load. A thin profile makes it ideal for usage on Servo motors and ball screws.

Ogura products are manufactured in Europe, North and South America and Asia. Manufacturing plants are ISO9001, 14001 and TS16949 compliant. Clutches and brakes are RoHS compliant.

UK, European and Scandinavian customers please contact Michel Hehnen at All other inquiries should go to Jim Andes at
