The disc brake MATEC MD are negative brakes (spring loaded), i.e. the braking force is obtained by means of a spring that, through a suitable system of levers, transmits its amplified action to the braking pads, where the linings are fitted. An electrohydraulic or pneumatic thrustor makes an apposite force to the spring load , causing the pads to open, therefore the brake to release.
The braking force given by the linings against the disk can be modulated by adjusting the spring.
Braking torque changes depending on braking force modulation.


Automatic wear compensation RG.
Linings max wear indicator, fitted on rod FCU.
Open brake indicator, either fitted on thrustor or on spring set (to be specified) FCA.
Brake manual opening lever LSM.
