SIBRE - Industrial


Cranes in port and container terminals around the world are exposed to high stress due to climate change strengthened by storms or sudden wind interference.

The use of storm brakes prevents that cranes are set in motion by external forces and thus endanger people and goods.

In this application area SIBRE globally works together with crane manufacturers, suppliers and operators for many years to offer high-end storm braking systems for railmounted cranes through using the most up-to-date means of production and technology.



Caliper Brakes type SHI are used as holding and emergency stop brake, installed on output shaft connected drive components such as the flange of hoist rope drums or the idler pulley of a conveyor belt. The SHI series brakes consist of two independent halves with facing spring packages and hydraulic cylinders. The brake shoes are supported by parallel key which absorbs the braking force.



The TE series drum brakes shown here have been developed using state of the art industrial brake technology according to DIN 15435.

This robust model was particularly designed for use in general engineering, metallurgy, crane and conveyor plants, for use both underground and above ground, as well as in wind turbine plants.

These brakes are for use whenever a constant brake torque is of outmost importance, not only for reasons of safety but also from a commercial standpoint.



The disc brakes type USB are designed considering the specific demands of crane-, lifting- and material handling applications – they are the consequent result of the continuous research and development performed by SIBRE.

Combined with another improvement of the SIBRE lining wear compensator the advantages allow to consider USB type brakes the first virtually maintenance-free disc brakes.



Service or emergency stop brakes for heavy duty operation and coasting (e.g. hoist brakes in container cranes or for large belt conveyor systems, bucket wheel excavators, stackers, reclaimers). The brakes of the TEXU series are double operating disc brakes which work according to the precept of a conventially drum brake. The braking force will be transmitted to the brake disc on two symmetrically points..

Consequently the tangential forces at the shaft are compensated. The speciality of this brake is the actuating of both callipers with 2 parallel mounted spring tubes in relation with only one concentrically mounted thruster. Furthermore the brake is equipped with a synchronisation linkage, which ensures an evenly spaced out air gap at all 4 linings. The wear of the linings and the consequently increasing air gap will be compensated by our reliable automatic wear compensation.



SIBRE compact disc brakes series CB are designed as service and stopping brake in travel drives of container handling cranes, bucket wheel excavators, stackers / reclaimers etc.

Sinter-linings for high circumferential speeds and thermal loads are optionally available as well as switches and monitoring systems.



Couplings for connection of motor and gearbox input-shaft, optionally fitted with brake disc or brake drum, suitable for compensation of axial, radial and angular displacement of shafts.

We also manufacture a variety of transmission components like brake discs, crane wheels, buffers and backstops to meet any power transmission requirement you may have.
