Brakes for the Material Handling Industry

The Advantage of Partnering with Stearns

Material handling operations face the constant challenge of increasing production output without jeopardizing quality and dependability. Moving consumer goods fast without sacrificing machinery downtime means investing in highly efficient motors, motor brakes and power transmission components for the conveyor belts that drive large scale production processes across a plethora of industries including: Food & Beverage, Mining, Automotive, Packaging and more.

Stearns offers a breadth of motor brakes for conveyors and belts that provide bulk material handling systems to exert precise control over short distance movements, protection and storage of materials within warehouses and distribution centers. Conveyor brakes from Stearns provide reliable braking that can support heavy load weights even in the event of a power failure or electricity outage allowing conveyors located in fully-automated facilities or individual belt machines to run efficiently with minimal equipment downtime that material handling plants depend on to remain competitive in their market.
