Wheel Clamps and Brakes

Wheel Clamps and Brakes 0310

Wheel Clamps and Wheel Brakes are used in many applications to insure the safety of your equipment.  Wheel Clamps

wc_brakeand Brakes can be used on Container Cranes, Rail Cars, Tripper Cars, and Gantry Cranes.

How Wheel Clamps and Wheel Brakes Work:

Wheel Clamps and Brakes act directly on the wheel side flanges of rail mounted equipment.  They can be either spring applied (fail-safe) or pressure applied and they are intended for emergency stopping and holding.  Wheel Clamps and Brakes are similar to caliper brakes and are used for dynamic stopping and holding.  A toggle linkage compensates for lining wear to provide constant braking force.
