OEM approved for major turbine manufacture and operators
Tested by LINK Engineering, Detroit, USA
Tests done by LINK Engineering on high energy dynamometer in Detroit, in cooperation with a leading OEM Brake Systems Supplier, certifies that our products fully met all OEM requirements.
Developped by National Research Council Engineers
Our sintered friction linings were designed and manufactured specifically for wind turbines, Developed by engineering experts from the Canadian National Research Council specialized in metal powder. Our brake pads meet the highest durability and performance standards in the industry.
"Under high temperature condition during emergency braking, it was found that the KUMA Brake Pads had a 12% dynamic friction factor change while brake pads from other manufacturer gave higher dynamic friction values. This means the brake load on the rotor disc is subjected to braking loads less than existing brake pad during emergency braking "
- Yvon Desjardins, P. Eng., PhD Electrohydraulic Servos, President Centre Hydraulique Hydred inc
"KUMA Brake Pads are a regular supplier in our wind farms and we are very satisfied by the quality and performance of their products."
