Step 1: Brake Retrofit


MA-2200 Press Upgrade showing CD Series Brake

Existing magnetic particles brakes may create excessive tension, limiting the materials that can be run and limiting the ability to run unwind rolls all the way down to the core.

Even with ZERO volts applied to the brake there is still substantial friction on the unwind. To eliminate residual friction, while increasing tension control, precision and material versatility, Montalvo C Series Tension Brakes are used to easily replace the existing brake.

  • Remove existing mag particle brake, belt, shaft wheel & hub
  • Drill & tap module standoffs, then mount brake and modules
  • Install I/P Converter, plumb brake and connect air supply

*Note: on MA-2200, hold back brake will also need to be disengaged
