The NFT is a spring applied, electrohydraulic thruster released, industrial drum brake designed to the S-472A specification.

This metric thruster drum brake is foot mounted and uses stop bolts to adjust centering and brake shoe alignment. The torque spring is configured horizontally.

This brake is often installed between the motor and the gearbox for stopping or to be used as a holding brake in a variety of industrial applications including winches, conveyors, steel mills, and cranes.

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

We also support, stock, and repair the TH-I-256 thruster used to actuate this brake.
