Short summary
A novel hollow-ring permanent magnet brake integrated in robot joints is proposed, which allows the brake to require much less axial space and provides more than 1.5 times braking torque for the same volume as the conventional electromagnetic-spring friction brake. A coupled dynamics model of the proposed brake is developed from machine-electric-magnetic aspects. The 3D model of the brake is simulated through finite-element software. The theoretical models are verified through experiments.
