SMI Corporation about history

Satisfied Customers

“We had a job that we were doing and sent out quotes to a few brake companies.  Two of them came back with a two caliper brake system.  SMI was able to do the job with one.   It saved us a lot of money.   Finally a company that builds a product around your needs and not their limitations”

Jack

Max

Stage Rigging Engineer
“ We started using the SMI Caliper Brakes on our 824 hoist motors. They performed so well that we retrofitted the rest of the machine with them.   Fast forward two years and we now have  all three dragline outfitted with the SMI Caliper Brakes.   Simply put they are the best performing brake systems for our needs”
