Nexen Spring Engaged Caliper Brake Type VC500 

The VC500 has a torque rating that is maintained throughout the life of the friction facing. Due to its long cycle life, the rear linkage design actually increases clamping force as the facings wear.

A high performance solution that will fit into tight spaces on automotive conveyor systems, large converting machines, sawmills, and many other applications.
