BRAINTREE, Mass — The rapidly growing demand for compact, battery-powered construction and agriculture equipment has created a highly competitive market environment for equipment original-equipment manufacturers (OEMs). Warner Electric, a global leader in electromagnetic brake technologies, is uniquely positioned to support design engineers as they meet these application challenges.

Warner Electric offers innovative braking solutions designed to reduce power consumption on a wide variety of battery-powered construction equipment, including slewing drives on compact track- driven loaders and excavators, traction wheel motors on compact skid steers and wheeled excavators and mobile elevating work platforms (MEWPs).

Warner braking technologies are also ideal for many agriculture applications, including autonomous sprayers, small tractors (50-70 horsepower) and telehandlers.

Highly experienced Warner Electric application engineers routinely work with OEM engineering teams to develop compact, energy efficient braking solutions to meet the needs of each equipment requirement, whether it’s for a completely new equipment design or the electric conversion of an existing machine.

Utilizing existing, proven braking solutions, including the popular PK and CBTB ranges, Warner engineers can quickly modify a standard brake design and ship prototypes to OEMs for testing. Warner Electric’s ability to rapidly respond to a customer need saves valuable time and effort for busy OEM engineers while allowing them to focus on other critical equipment systems and components.

With manufacturing facilities strategically positioned around the world, Warner can provide short lead times while meeting the demanding delivery requirements of global OEM production schedules.

Original compact, powerful and proven PK brake design leads the market

Adopted by more than 30 key OEMs since 2010, Warner Electric’s popular PK brakes are installed on more than 500,000 aerial work platforms and forklift trucks in the field. The benefits of this cost competitive range include one-piece design for easy assembly, lower power consumption, longer battery life, and overall lower maintenance costs.
