Within the Mining industry, crushers are typical heavy-duty machinery whose drives are characterized by shock loads and dynamic displacement of large masses with big inertias. Westrock can provide the right brake you need to handle the weight and force created by these powerful machines.
Inclined and Overland Conveyors
Westrock has the industry-specific knowledge to supply the optimal braking system for your needs. Our heavy-duty caliper disc brakes are designed to overcome extremely high torque requirements in harsh environmental conditions.
Ball and SAG Mills
Westrock specializes in the distribution of caliper brakes strong enough to withstand the heavy force created by these high-powered machines. Our VMS and VKSD disc brake calipers provide long lasting, reliable performance on mine ball and sag mills.
Winders and Hoists
When it comes to the advanced braking technologies for industrial applications such as mining hoists, Westrock offers the largest range of pneumatically-, hydraulically-, and mechanically-applied industrial disc brake calipers in the world. We have the knowledge to assist in supplying the right brake for the job.
