Brake Lifting, Installation Tool

1705mtprod17pThe LBS 120 yaw brake lifting and installation tool uses a simple carriage assembly to position, raise, and lower brakes to minimize heavy lifting. For brake assemblies with a maximum width of 502 mm and a brake disc thickness of 40 mm, the tool uses a winch mechanism with a maximum lifting height of 2,000 mm. Once the lifting tool has been installed, the original brake can be released, allowing it to rest on a sliding carriage that is used to position the brake below the winch mechanism used to lower it to the floor. The process is reversed to install the new brake, after which the tool can be repositioned to work on the next brake.

Said to help minimize errors due to changes in configurations, improve worker productivity, and simplify automation asset management, the platform provides a single, integrated view of complex system interactions. Operations can continue during data snapshots as the software does not impact the engineering system during collection periods.
