Nema 23 Z AXIS brake questions - closed loop stepper
« on: December 23, 2015, 07:30:05 PM »
Hey everyone.

I just bought a set of Leadshine closed loop stepper motors and drives. I am going to install them on my old Techno Isel 027 CNC.

The original Techno Z axis stepper motor had a Lenze brake on it. I figure I am going to need a brake for my new Z axis closed loop stepper motor.
I am very new to brakes and know little about them. I take it I will need a NEMA 23 mounted brake to go with my closed loop stepper motor.

Can anyone direct me to a manufacturer that would fit my needs? I expect to pay around $200. Is there anything available in Canada? What holding torque would I need?
I can't find any of them on eBay.

I really appreciate any help the community can give.
Thank you.
