Brakes stop whatever needs to be kept in place, whether it is an elevator, a wind turbine or a robot arm in a production facility. Kendrion (Villingen) GmbH is an expert in bringing moving things to a standstill. Based in southern Germany, the Industrial Drive Systems business unit of the Kendrion group covers all aspects of electromagnetism, in particular brakes.
