Brake Motors


Options make motors suitable for either onshore or offshore duties

Engineered to give high performance with maximum efficiency

Reliability & durability ensured through total control over component supply chains


Extensive configuration options match motors to applications

The harsher the working environment the greater the demand on engineering standards, and non-standard then becomes the norm. Custom-design and engineering fulfil this need to give the reliability and performance demanded.

The Lafert Brake Motor series is engineered according to the client's specification. Total control over all aspects of production permits multiple design options including flanges, shafts, brakes plus optimum resistance to external agents and hostile environments for paints, seals, and magnet surfaces.

The result is a range of AC motors produced entirely in-house which incorporates Lafert’s own technical solutions for achieving high efficiency and performance, combined with the option for application-specific customization.

AMBZ SERIES - High torque, AC Brake: fitted with a three-phase AC brake with double braking surface and step-adjustable high braking torque (Mf>1.5Mn) to ensure precise and reliable braking.

This series offers fast and powerful braking typical of AC brakes and is the perfect series for all general industry applications requiring highest starting and/or braking frequency. The series is designed with separate brake power supply on a dedicated terminal board and avoids the user having to make changes due to the switching of the power supply system e.g. with soft starter or inverter.
