CB8 Compact Brake


SIBRE’s range of CB8 Compact Brake units have all the benefits of a big brake in a small brake package. It is undoubtedly the most advanced design of compact brake available on the market.


The latest generation of CB8 compact brake (which replaces the previous SK4 range) offers a fully functional failsafe disc brake, with all the features of larger designs such as sintered linings, wear compensation, adjustable torque spring, manual release lever as well as brake open and pad wear proximity sensors.  All of this in a compact design only 185 mm wide, with a maximum clamping force of 9000 N.  Various release options are available including Compact Electro-Hydraulic Thruster, Solenoid, Hydraulic and Pneumatic cylinder.

It is suitable for Dynamic Braking in High Speed applications up to 1580 Nm on a 500 mm disc, and as a holding brake for applications up to 2000 Nm on a 630 mm disc.

The CB8 compact brake range of units are particularly suited for small to medium sized conveyor drives up to 250 kW installed power, and on travel or trolley drives for container and overhead cranes.

Older Generations

While the CB8 compact brake is the current generation of our compact disc brake range, can we still supply parts for older generations such as the SK4 and CB5 solenoid operated disc brakes.
