German to English translations [PRO] Tech/Engineering - Mechanics / Mech Engineering / Elektroplattformwagen
German term or phrase:Kniespreizbremse
Unfortunately no decent context... It is in a list with part numbers (none of which yield anything on the Internet) and the remark that one has to consult the product-specific manual in the appendix for more details, unfortunately I do not have this appendix at my disposal... The document is a manual for a battery-operated truck with lift platform (Elektroplattformwagen), and the other entries in the list where this mysterious brake occurs are things like Axialkolbenverstellpumpe and Drehstrommotor. Any suggestions for English translations, or perhaps for German synonyms that are more common would be greatly appreciated!
Asked the customer... it is a "Kniespreizhebelbremse", which is a "knieförmige Spreizhebelbremse", EN=spread lever brake. So it is a brake after all, which means John is closest. But thank you very much to both of you! 4 KudoZ points were awarded for this answer
Explanation: A "Keilspreizbremse" is a wedge (expansion) brake.
The only thing that comes to my mind for your posting is a knee-operated brake.
Perhaps that helps you a bit.
