Cutler-Hammer brakes are used for both holding and stopping heavy loads. Common applications include hoists, conveyors, cranes and machine tools. These brakes are from the steel manufacturing industry, specifically off of an overhead crane hoist brake.
Not only were these brake shoes relined by thermal bonding procedure some of them were hole line bored on our jig. This process enables us to oversize the diameter of the pin hole after which we can machine and fit a phosphor bronze bush. This removes the excess play out of the oval pin holes and the bushes which then leaves the brake shoes with the original pin diameter – just like new!
