Brake Assemblies & Component Parts
- Strictly Cam /Mechanical requiring no air or electric circuit
- Eliminates machines lugging when using Pull Out Cams or extra springs on
the Cam Carrier
- Eliminates the necessity ot over tighten the Hand Clutch resulting in longer
- Eliminates the twisting of the front shaft during a smash up by way of requiring
less tention on the Hand Clutch which creates a safety margin
- Removes strain from the High Speed Clutch during index resulting in longer
- Maximum contact between Brake Drum and Brake Band resulting in excellent
drag and longer life
- Brake completely releases during high speed index
- Easy stock up for operator
- Significantly improved ease and stability of adjustment
- Frequency of adjustment minimized
Instructions for NP-600-I (Cam/Mechanical Iron Brake Assembly) and NP-600-B
(Cam/Mechanical Bronze Brake Assembly)
Installation of both styles brakes are identical with the following
- The NP-600-I requires COOLING and LUBRICATION
- The NP-600-B requires LUBRICATION ONLY
This is explained in further detail later in the instructions
- Remove Davenport brake when machine is just starting into work cycle after
high speed index
- Working with the NP-600-I or NP-600-B, REMOVE from Connecting Rod (NP-730):
a. Jam Nut (NP-760-N)
b. Conical Shoulder Nut (NP-745)
c. Reversing Strap (NP-750)
- OIL all moving parts of brake before continuing or severe damage to the
brake will result
- Place Clevis Assembly (NP-780) into saddle of Cam Carrier Bracket (NP-5080-43)
CAUTION: Be sure Bijur Lube Line does not run through where Clevis will rest
in saddle of casting. If necessary, reroute lube line so Clevis will sit flat
in saddle of Cam Carrier Braket
- Slide Brake Drum (NP-710) and Brake Band (NP-700) on to Cam Shaft (5080-22-10).
Brake band has a lip on it to maintain proper alignment. DO NOT REMOVE THIS
- Rotate Brake Band counterclockwise on to the Connecting Rod (NP-730) until
it rests in the grooves at the top of Clevis (NP-780)
- With pin facing outward, slide Brake Cam (NP-720) on to Cam Shaft
- Hook reversing strap (NP-750) into opening at rear of Change Gear Box (5080-137)
and rotate clockwise on to Connecting Rod
- Twist Conical Shoulder Nut (NP-745) on to connecting rod
NOTE: The Conical Shoulder nut must go THROUGH the Reversing Strap and seat
itself in the conical surface at the top of the Brake Band. The Reversing
Strap should be loose on the conical nut.
NOTE: The Reversing Strap will only function when the machine is manually
reversed. It will catch on the Change Gear Box and stop the reverse rotation
of the NP-600 brake assembly.
- Twist Jam Nut (NP-760-N) on the Connecting Rod
- Relpace spacers 5080-24 for Cam Shaft leaving out one Cam Spacer
CAUTION: With Conical Shoulder Nut and Jam Nut LOOSE, SLOWLY jog machine through
its cycle. Be sure Brake Band doesn't OVERTHIGHEN.
- If you are installing a NP-600-I Cam/Mechanical Iron Brake Band go to step
If you are installing a NP-600-B Cam/Mechanical Bronze Brake Band go to step
- This step is to be used with the NP-600-I Cam/Mechanical Iron Brake Assembly.
Run a coolant line to the brake. Both the Clevis Mechanism and Iron Brake
Band must receive coolant before beginning to adjust brake.
- The NP-600-B Cam/Mechanical Bronze Brake Assembly does not require a coolant
line. Use an oil can filled with 20 weight lube oil to lubricate the Clevis
Mechanism and Bronze Brake Band at least once every 8 hours or as needed.
- To thighten Brake Band, let machine run empty and begin tightening conical
shoulder nut until turret cams stop lunging or machine functions properly
with a smooth rotation of the cam shaft
- Tighten Jam Nut (NP-760-N)
- Adjust the amount of coolant as needed to keep the NP-600-I Cam/Mechanical
Iron Brake Assembly temperature constant
- THIS BRAKE RELEASES DURING HIGH SPEED INDEX. Loosen Hand Clutch only if
it is excessively tight. This allows it to slip in the event of a smash up.
