Wemmel, Belgium, March 2018. Nexen Group, Inc. announces the release of the ZSE brake family, zero-backlash spring engaged brakes. Ideal for holding applications, the pneumatically-released ZSE brake offers high torque, high speed and zero backlash.

These sensors detect the disengagement status and internal unit temperature and provide feedback and data to maximize machine safety and efficiency.
Applications for Nexen's ZSE brake family include conveyor systems, robotic arms, trunnion tables, positiong indexers and standard through shaft setups in a wide variety of industries.
Apart from industrial brakes, Nexen produces roller pinion systems, clutches, torque limiters, overload protection devices and control systems. The company holds 120 US and international patents.
