118VM Topdrive Plate Brake
A leading global manufacturer of drilling rigs and oilfield equipment required a topdrive braking solution for a new 750-ton land-based rig. The brake provides dynamic emergency stopping and static holding of the topdrive during drilling operations. The brake needed to be ATEX-certified and had to accommodate high disengaged running speeds while providing a high torque capacity in a compact space envelope.
