The LAM 8″ is a spring applied, electromagnetically released industrial drum brake.

This electromagnetic brake fits brake drums with dimensions in imperial units (inches) and is designed according to steel mill standards (AISE N.11-63.120). The LAM brake is therefore an ideal “bolt in” replacement when upgrading existing braking systems in a steel mill environment.

This brake is available in both 400 cycle/hour and 600 cycle/hour configurations. While commonly configured with shunts connected, this brake is also available in series connection.

Hindon provides comprehensive support for LAM brakes including repair services and full engineering, technical, and application support.
