Coxreels introduces three-way brake
Coxreels introduced the three-way brake for its 1600 Series reels.
The three-way brake is a lever-actuated brake, offering the operator three positions: locked (full brake), drag (minimal brake), and free-spin (no brake), for use during transport, unwinding, and rewinding.
In mobile applications where unspooling during transport is unacceptable, or pulsing pressure applications where undesired rewinding or unwinding may occur, rapid and simple reel locking is necessary. The three-way brake offers a dependable and fast-locking method with the simple flip of a lever. For applications where extra brake force is required, the three way brake multiplies the braking torque through chain and sprocket gearing to deliver incredible locking power.
