Others including I-FLEX coupling and brake discs

In viewing brakes as the ultimate safety device, Ican has taken all possible measures to ensure quality and safety. The I-FLEX disc coupling requires no lubrication, thus eliminated the risk of contamination by leaking lubricants on the disc resulting in a reduction of braking tourque. Installation of the I-FLEX brake disc is possible without the need to remove the motor-gear drive unit.
