Max Planck Institute

A mirror telescope was installed on the island of La Palma in Spain for space research. As a consortium partner, the Max Planck Institute Munich is responsible for the elevation of this telescope and has instructed HEID Antriebstechnik to develop special holding brakes with a total braking torque of 8000 Nm. HEID was able to offer Max Planck Institute an ideal technical implementation, very quickly specially designed electromagnetic multi-disc brakes and thus win the contract. 

Nanjing Kangni

The company KN in Nanjing China is specialized in the production of door systems for railways and subways. A singleface brake specially developed by HEID not only had to correspond to very compact installation dimensions, but also to guarantee that the doors were held in place under enormous voltage fluctuations of +/- 30 percent.
