Motion Drives & Controls can supply the full Nexen RB Series of linear profile guide rail brakes that use spring force to secure the load in holding applications. Superior response time, high force for stopping, and holding in e-stop and power-off situations. Each RB brake clamps directly onto the center of the guide rail to provide positive braking and holding in all axes, with no effect on bearing surfaces. These profile rail brakes hold position accurately by reducing drive train backlash and elasticity
