Dellner Brakes Sets its Sights on the U.S. Market Sweden-based Dellner Brakes AB introduced its portfolio of technologically advanced braking solutions to the U.S. marine market earlier this month at the International Workboat Show. The portfolio included the world’s first fully automated, electrical “stop, turn, lock” (eSTL) system. While Dellner Brakes is no stranger to the marine market, its U.S. operations have traditionally focused on the industrial sector, operating through wholly-owned U.S. subsidiary Dellner Industrial Inc. But Dellner is now looking to bring its precision made braking systems and expertise to the U.S. marine market and is investing in the expansion of its U.S. team to support this goal. The patent pending, fully automated, electrical eSTL braking system is compact and needs no additional piping, making it quick, easy and cost effective to install, especially where space is limited. The system is available in a range of standard sizes but can be customized for different applications. The eSTL system allows customers to choose one, two or three functions to create a bespoke solution for their needs. Here’s how it works:

Dellner Brakes’ eSTL system is the world’s first fully automated electrical stop, turn and lock system

Stop: A disc brake system stops the shaft quickly in any position. Turn: After the brake has stopped the disc, an electric motor rotates the pinion so it aligns automatically and accurately with the gear wheel on the disc. A second mechanism then engages the pinion with the gear wheel and the electric motor allows the disc and connected shaft to be rotated at a variable speed to any exact position.

Lock: An electrically operated mechanical locking system locks the brake disc and shaft safely and securely, even in ship failure modes. The eSTL also has an optional continuous turning (cT) function that allows the shaft to be moved to any position precisely without the need for indexing. This makes maintenance easier and testing can take place over long periods. www.dellner-brakes.com
