The paper conducted a research on a broken-belt catching machine based on full face catching. The device is a mechanical electrical hydraulic integration design, driven by hydraulic pressure to achieve catching work. This paper introduces its principle and basic composition, using ADMAS and AMESim simulation software to verify the rationality of the design. Prototype was produced for the experiment in the laboratory. The results show that the catching device can safely complete the work and the arrest meets the design requirements, without significant impact to performance.
