    Wet-Type Disk Brakes Offer Powerful, Stable Braking

    Wet-Type Disk Brakes Offer Powerful, Stable Braking

    Kobelco cranes’ winches feature independently developed wet brakes. Forced oil cooling makes these brakes resistant to the reduction in braking ability that occurs when temperatures rise, so that they are well suited to working for long periods. The use of multi-plate disks ensures sufficient braking capacity and means that braking can be performed with a modicum of force. What’s more, the brakes themselves are compact and encased in drums.
