Mechanical Power Transmission

Thin Spring-Applied Brake come in torque ratings up to 445 lb-in.

Offered in 7Â- sizes which collectively cover 35–445 lb-in. torque range, TNB series features thin design made possible via optimized flux path and coefficient of friction of material used. These spring-applied brakes are mainly designed for holding but may also be used to handle emergency stops up to brake's allowable engagement energy rating. While products were created to meet...

New Ogura Magnetic Particle Clutches Have Improved Performance

Two of the most popular magnetic particle clutches from Ogura have been redesigned to improve performance for a variety of tension and torque control applications.Â-  The clutch now has a faster response because of a new optimized internal flux path design.  In addition, this new, more efficient flux path allows for the clutch to use a smaller coil.  The new coil is about...

Soft Start Control allows clutch to safely slip.
Electrical Equipment & Systems

Soft Start Control allows clutch to safely slip.

IntendedÂ- for gas and diesel engines, Softstart Control option senses exact point at which friction surfaces contact, then rapidly reduces current to level that allows clutch to safely slip, but not release. Controller uses engine rpm feedback to adjust clutch current in manner that drives engine rpm to fit desired profile. By allowing for smooth engagement, control minimizes shock...

Permanent Magnet Brake operates in temperatures to 140°C.
Mechanical Power Transmission

Permanent Magnet Brake operates in temperatures to 140°C.

Featuring 17 mm max bore and 8,000 rpm max rating, 0.85 lb model PMB-06 comes standard with armature/hub and 24v coil but can be modified to specification. Size and 6.6 lb-ft of static torque make this brake suitable for medical and other portable applications. When brakes are released, airgap is present that completely releases armature for zero drag. Zero backlash suits servo and precision...

Pneumatic Caliper Disc Brakes resist vibration.
Mechanical Power Transmission

Pneumatic Caliper Disc Brakes resist vibration.

Spring-applied and pneumatically released, Models ANB-1100-CP and ANB-2300-CP provide 11,000 N and 23,000 N of clamping force, respectively. Actual torque applied to given application is function of diameter of disc, and disc for either brake would be supplied by customer. Any time pneumatic pressure is lost, brakes can come on and hold in emergency, making them suitable for wind turbines and...

Spring-Engaged Clutches operate when power fails.
Mechanical Power Transmission

Spring-Engaged Clutches operate when power fails.

Available in 10 sizes from 10-960 lb-ft, SMC series engages any time power is released. Power is only required when clutch needs to disengage, and series can also be used as standby or creep drives. Standard coil voltage is 24, but modified voltages are available. Also, bore sizes can be modified to meet application requirements. Areas of use include construction elevator, machine tool, and...

Industrial Clutch and Brake employ sound dampening technique.

Industrial clutch and brake V series, available with silent armature, accommodates applications in medical and entertainment industries, where extraneous noise is problematic. Attached to back side of armature, dampening material absorbs clicking sound from clutch or brake engagement. Clutches and brakes come in 6 sizes, from 4.5-150 lb-ft torque, and have standard operating voltage of 24 Vdc....

Low Cost Solution to SERVO Drives

Most industrial clutches and brakes are measured in the millions of cycles, but when you have applications such as high volume mail sorting machines life needs to be measured in the tens of millions of cycles. To accomplish this high cycle life, Ogura uses ceramic friction material as an option in the AMC series of clutches and brakes. In most high cycle applications, Servo systems are used...
