Brakes & Stops

Our product brake and stop range from below surface mounted devices like blade and pin stops, overhead and side mounted devices, or braking devices within the surface itself.

Features / Benefits
  • Gentle product stopping
  • Quiet and high-speed options
  • Allows product flow control without stopping conveyor drive motor or damaging the product
  • Standard Industrial and heavy washdown product stop designs available
Blade Stops

Most product stops are pneumatically-operated and mounted beneath the conveyor surface with a stainless steel blade or set of pins which extends above and retracts below the roller surface between roller shafts on command. Several styles are available including shock-absorbing and low profile versions.

Pin Stops

Overhead Brake

Customized product stops can also be mounted above the conveyor surface, as needs dictate. Because they are modular, product stops can be relocated and/or added as product handling needs change.

Our in-surface brakes specially designed rollers are fitted with a "tire" or rubber sleeve. On command, a pneumatic cylinder equipped with a face plate pushes these rollers up against the bottom of the product to stop them and effectively "brake" any product which had been passing over that area of the conveyor surface.
