Caliper Disc Brakes: ABC carries Hydraulic or Pneumatic apply Calipers (for service work) and Spring apply Hydraulic/Pneumatic release operation Calipers (for emergency). Caliper disc brakes are available in wide range of sizes and torque ratings, with applications ranging from test bench applications to draglines. We have a large range of sizes and brands to suit your requirements.

Multiple Disc Brakes: These are totally enclosed units applied by built-in springs and "held off" by hydraulic pressure. Available in SAE A, B, C or D mounts, with torque ranging from 1,000 to 24,000 Applications include manlifts, scissor lifts, winches, swing booms and farm harvesting equipment.

Thruster Brakes: are either electro-hydraulic or electro-pneumatic and are negative types, i.e. the braking action happens when the brake is not electrically actuated. Applications include lifting, translating service, and as emergency or safety brake.

Manual Calipers: ABC can supply manual calipers that are often used for emergency stopping or holding brakes or in situations where hydraulic or pneumatic pressure is unavailable.

Air/Hydraulic Actuators: The range of Air/Hydraulic Actuators come with a market leading 72 cc (4.4 in3) displacement, with air chambers from type 9 through to type 36. At 100 psi input this gives an output pressure range from 510 psi through to 2030 psi. Our master cylinders are wholly manufactured in Australia to ABC's exacting standards.
