The TE is a spring applied, electrohydraulic thruster (ED 50/6) released, industrial drum brake.

This thruster brake is designed according to steel mill standards (DIN 15345 specification). This makes it suitable as a “drop in” replacement for older steel mill brakes.

Advantages of this industrial brake include its torque adjustability (which enables fine-tuning of the braking process), its ease of commissioning and maintenance, and its soft / impact-free operation. Because of its longevity, ability to handle high duty cycles, and ability to perform in a range of ambient conditions, this thruster drum brake is an ideal service brake in port applications (as a container crane brake), and on large movable structures (bridge brakes), in addition to the aforementioned steel mill applications.

Hindon provides comprehensive support for TE brakes including brake repair services for TE brakes.

We are also an official partner of EMG Automation. We stock commonly used thruster models at our South Carolina facility and perform warrantied repair services for EMG Eldro thrusters.
