Mechanical Safety Catcher

The Mechanical Safety Catcher KRM is operated purely mechanically and requires neither a hydraulic nor a pneumatic system for control.

The clamping head is kept open mechanically and acts upon rupture of the suspension (rope, belt, chain, etc.). The energy of the falling mass is then used to generate the clamping force.

In applications where lifted loads can be dangerous in case of rupture of the suspension device, Safety Catchers KRM are used to protect people and assure accident prevention. Safety Catchers KRM secure the load at any point of the stroke in a mechanically safe and absolutely reliable way. Due to the principle of self-intensifying clamping, a very high level of safety is reached.

Application example

Packing Machine: Securing the lifting frame driven by chains in a packing machine; safety for worker and machine in case of chain rupture.
