Hold on! No, it’s not an 80’s song. We receive calls on a frequent basis about applications requiring a holding brake. Typically in vertical applications, where the position of the load cannot be maintained when power is turned off, a spring-applied-power-off brake can be used to maintain the position of the load. Our NEMA 17, 23 and 34 frame stepping motors allow easy installation of NEMA frame size, modular, front-mounted brakes from Inertia Dynamics or Electroid.
