Johnson Industries Crane Brakes

We offer a variety of crane brakes designed specifically for your crane. Whether you are looking for brakes for your ship-loading crane, log handling crane, or any other type of crane—we have the crane brake or brake system for you!

Cranes require numerous brake systems on both the crane hoists and drive systems that move the crane along the rail. In addition to brake systems, a method of clamping the rails is required so that no movement occurs in the event of high wind forces. On hoists, the safest operation is with a dual braking method. The brakes should be mounted to the high-speed side of the gearbox and directly to the cable drum on the low-speed side of the gearbox in case of a broken shaft or gears.
