Overhead Crane Brakes

Crane parts service

The crane brake is installed on the motor shaft and is responsible for stopping the motor's operation in order to precisely and reliably stop the movement or hoisting mechanism at a predetermined position. The crane brake has become an essential component of power-driven crane systems.

With close to 15 years of experience, Kinocranes can provide the brake selection, engineering, and service that you need to keep your crane running at optimal efficiency.

Kinocranes, as a professional manufacturer of cranes, offers disc, drum, and storm brakes for EOT cranes. These Crane brakes can be used for bridge, trolley, and hoist motions and can serve as service, holding, and emergency brakes.

Bridge and Trolley Brakes: There are several types of brakes that can be effectively used for bridge and trolley motions.

DC Magnetic Drum brakes have been a traditional choice, but that newer options like AC and DC Thruster Drum brakes and Thruster or Magnetic Disc brakes are becoming more popular due to their features and benefits. The sliding torque tube and lowering valve of AC and DC Thruster Drum brakes, for example, can provide smoother braking and improved control. The greater contact and higher friction coefficient of Thruster or Magnetic Disc brakes can also lead to better braking performance, and the dual caliper design of Dual Caliper Disc brakes can provide a balanced load and reduce the risk of shaft twisting. It’s important to consider factors like load capacity, usage, and maintenance requirements when selecting the best brake option for a bridge or trolley motion.

Hoist Brakes: brakes are critical for ensuring the functionality and safety of a crane, and that different brake types are used for different duties. Using thruster or magnetic disc or drum brakes for service duty on the high-speed side of the crane can help ensure efficient operation, while caliper disc brakes on the low-speed side can provide emergency braking and prevent a load from falling in the event of a shaft or transmission failure.


Kinocranes offers the following brakes:

  1. Thruster Drum Brakes
  2. Thruster Disc Brakes
  3. DC Magnetic Drum Brakes


Crane brakes are an important component of crane systems, as they help control and maintain the movement of the crane and prevent it from moving uncontrollably or dropping its load. The main components of a crane brake system include:

Brake Disc or Drum: This is the main component of the brake system and is responsible for stopping or slowing down the motion of the crane. Depending on the type of brake system, the brake disc or drum can be made of different materials, such as cast iron or steel, and can have different surface finishes to optimize friction and wear.

Brake Caliper: The brake caliper is responsible for applying force to the brake disc or drum and is usually made up of one or more pistons that push brake pads onto the surface of the disc or drum.

Brake Actuator: The brake actuator is responsible for controlling the movement of the brake caliper and can be either a hydraulic, pneumatic, or electric system.

Brake Control System: The brake control system is responsible for initiating and regulating the application of brakes on the crane. It can be either manual or automatic and can include features such as emergency stop buttons or sensors to detect anomalies in the brake system.

Brake Fluid or Air: In hydraulic or pneumatic brake systems, brake fluid or air is used to transmit force from the brake actuator to the brake caliper.

Overall, the components of a crane brake system work together to ensure safe and efficient operation of the crane, and it’s important to select the right components based on the type of crane and its specific usage requirements.


  1. Safety and Reliability: Advanced braking technology is used, with fast braking, high efficiency, and safety.
  2. Stability: Adopting high-quality materials and precision processing technology, with excellent wear resistance and corrosion resistance, can run stably for a long time.
  3. Long Service Life: Used in conjunction with high-quality motors and gearboxes, it can ensure a long service life.
  4. Easy Maintenance: With simple structure and convenient maintenance, it can greatly reduce equipment maintenance costs. In conclusion, bridge crane brakes are an important part of bridge cranes, with significant roles and advantages, ensuring the safety and reliability of equipment, and providing reliable protection for industrial production and transportation sectors.


crane brakes are widely used in industrial and transportation sectors, mainly used in various types of bridge cranes, gantry cranes, tower cranes, elevators, and other equipment control systems to ensure safe operation.
