Locking braking system supports propulsion shaft maintenance

Locking braking system supports propulsion shaft maintenance
Regular maintenance of the propulsion shaft and propeller is required to ensure that all components are operating efficiently and safely during the operational life of a ship or ocean going vessel. Part of the process requires aligning and locking the shaft in place to enable this work to be carried out by the ship’s engineers. Twiflex has launched a Turning, Locking & Braking (TLB) System that provides a compact solution to allow the shaft position to be set and locked when the vessel is stationary.

Crucial braking system for London underground’s escalators

Crucial braking system for London underground’s escalators
Escalators are a huge contribution in keeping London’s Underground system running smoothly with 430 escalators on the network. Nearly 90 million passengers make more than 1.3 billion journeys every year on the underground, all of which would not be possible without Twiflex’s braking systems for the escalators.

Twiflex continues brake range expansion for optimised performance across all applications

Twiflex continues brake range expansion for optimised performance across all applications
Specifying a brake which will operate reliably and efficiently, with minimal maintenance intervention, is a challenge that must balance initial expenditure with the through-life costs. The main factors to consider include more than simply the duty (whether the brake is being used for dynamic stopping, static holding or continuous tensioning), but also what sort of environment the brake will be located in; whether there are particular space constraints; the operating medium; and if access for periodic maintenance will be possible or not.

Getting the most from heavy duty brakes

Getting the most from heavy duty brakes
Heavy duty braking system designs are as diverse as the different industries in which they are employed. From marine and mining to metal working and paper processing, systems are required to perform static, dynamic and emergency braking with precise controlled force. Quality is of the upmost importance in these products as the cost of a short service life can often be extremely high for the end-user. However, as with all things mechanical, it is possible to improve the reliability and life span of all braking designs with good specification, correct installation and correct maintenance procedures.

Twiflex Disc Brakes Meet the needs of Overland Coal Conveyors

Twiflex Disc Brakes Meet the needs of Overland Coal Conveyors
When coal processing plants are an appreciable distance from the mine, how best to transport the coal from one to the other is a key consideration. It is not unusual for the processing plant to be tens of miles away, which might at first glance suggest delivery by truck. But overland conveyors can often provide a far more economical solution, providing cost reductions in the order of 20-40% or more.
