Failsafe brakes

If there is an emergency and all supplies fail, failsafe brakes are used to stop any machine rotation.
Anything from a large industrial washing machine to a swing bridge may need an emergency brake.

Failsafe brakes are becoming more and more important due to their safety, this is because they have a low wear rate, meaning that the emergency break functions properly every time.  As all the components of the key brake system are enclosed, they require minimal maintenance.  Not only that, being sealed means they also have environmental and health and safety benefits, as airborne particle emissions are eliminated.
