FPC overspeed safety brakes mission in its application and assembly on mainly medium and high tonnages’ cranes is to ensure full braking of the cable drum in case of breakage in the transmission assembly.
They are mainly used in the construction industry, not only in hoists, scaffolding or lifts but also on cranes. Its primary function is to prevent, as a consequence of an accident or transmission breakage, the free fall of the load.
FPC overspeed safety brakes allow a high load possibility depending on the ratio calculation and the output revolutions. Several designs are possible.
