The GMX25, GMX30 and GMX40 are designed to use with discs that are 25.4mm (1 in) thick, 30mm (1.18 in) thick and 40mm (1.57 in) thick.
The SGMX caliper should only be used with discs 25.4mm (0.61 in) thick and a minimum disc diameter is 610mm (24 in).
The GMX/SGMX calipers can be used with any of the Twiflex series of thrusters. The link mechanism will ensure uniform pad wear.
The brakes may be positioned at any angle, but should ideally be mounted horizontally relative to the disc (i.e. at the 3 o’clock or 9 o’clock position). If the caliper mounting angle is greater than 10° from the horizontal, or on vertical shaft applications, use an inclined mounting kit or equalizing link.
For pneumatic operation use dry, filtered and non-lubricated compressed air. Pneumatic brakes require a control valve, operated either manually or by a pneumatic or electrical signal.
Twiflex disc brakes must be used with Twiflex asbestos free brake pads.
