The pneumatically operated brake was mounted on the unwinder of a rewinding line for paper drums.

This brake is used to slow down the unwinding paper drum in a controlled manner and thus create a defined tension (also called "pull") in the paper web between the unwinder and the motor-driven rewinder.

2 disc brakes with pneumatically actuated brake plates made of composite material with very good controllable braking characteristics and low wear were installed on one shaft. The interlocking clutch between the coupling and the core being unwound is operated manually.
