‘Braking’ with the past!

New spring-applied brake hailed as compact, easy and quick to install

The new INTORQ BFK551 is said to take Lenze Selection’s product line of small, compact spring-applied brakes to a whole new level.

“The INTORQ BFK551 offers a significantly improved, and more versatile range of performance and variance than comparable brakes on the market,” states the company.

Lenze Selection offers the following at-a-glance mini guide to the small spring-applied brake BFK551:

Compact size

"This brake type upgrades our range of compact spring-applied brakes to a new level. The BFK551 offers significant improvements and more flexibility, in terms of performance and customisation, compared with equivalent brake models."

Superior alternative

"With its space-saving size, the BFK551 can be easily integrated into new and existing drive solutions. The special housing design significantly increases the friction radius, which makes the BFK551 the more powerful solution, compared with competitors’ products."

Intelligent design

"Recesses in the brake housing allow the connecting cables to be conveniently routed along the outside of the housing. The cable exit is equally ingenious and ensures that the minimum circumscribed circle (MCC) of the brake remains unchanged, irrespective of the mounting direction."

Future-proof quality

"Optimised subassembly prefabrication and final assembly at the customer’s site guarantee sustainable future-proof quality."


The BFK551 can be easily integrated into new and existing drive solutions, states Lenze Selection.
