Mumbai, August 16, 2013: Avantha Group Company CG,is pleased to announce the release of its new brake motor called "Kibosh". The design is a performance-matched motor brake package utilizing CG`s proven motor technologies.


“Kibosh” is a power saver that comes with an enhanced liner life and ensures low heating of the brake thereby extending its life. It is ideally suited for various braking applications like crane movement, hoists, rolling mills, windmills, elevators and other applications requiring frequent starting and stopping. Its ruggedly constructed cast iron or aluminium body is built to provide long life and quiet, trouble-free, safe operation. The brake interface is a combination of an AC induction motor and a disc type “fail safe” electromagnetic brake unit, with an output ranging from 0.75 kW to 30 kW in frame sizes ND80 to ND200L.


CG is the only manufacturer in India to provide a brake kit with multi-mount arrangement in aluminium construction. Unlike conventional brake motors, “Kibosh” offers a compact cost -effective package with replaceable brake kit as an added feature so that every standard CG make motor up to 132 frames can be instantly modified to a brake motor in approximately 30 minutes. They are ready for immediate delivery through a wide distributor network across India. CG’s Kibosh is set to tap the Rs 56 crore Indian market for brake motors while meeting the varying challenges of the heavy machinery industry.
