For many years, electromagnetic brakes have been utilized to stop Euroturn pick-off drive spindles, just prior to the pick-off collet opening.
Over time, users have discovered that the electromagnetic clutch does not have the braking torque capability to completely stop the Air-Pick-off spindle, thereby ejecting parts that are still rotating in the tool zone – causing nicks, marks, lost parts, and machine cross slide jam-ups!
Now, Logan makes it easy for you to eliminate inconsistent part ejection, nicks and marks, and lost parts with our new Stop and Drop Pick-off drives. We’ve developed a factory or field retrofitted pick-off drive spindle and brake kit, using proven Logan air actuated brakes, which bring the pick-off drive shaft to a dead stop, just prior to the pick-off collet opening – enabling parts to eject right into your parts chute.
Logan Pick-off drives are available for factory or field retrofit directly though your OEM, distributor or through Logan Clutch Corporation.
