Mach III Clutch Inc.

Mechanical Power Transmission

Reduced Torque Clutches, Brakes enhance narrow web converters.

Driven at constant speed by primary drive of machine, SensiFlex-® tension control clutches and brakes include 19 models with proprietary ULOW (ultra-low coefficient) friction facings. These single-surface, air-actuated friction devices maintain tension on roll of material - paper, film, foil, wire - as it is being unwound/rewound. Span of air pressure traversed to deliver torque required at core...

Spring Engaged Friction Clutches work in absence of pressure.
Mechanical Power Transmission

Spring Engaged Friction Clutches work in absence of pressure.

Comprising 9 models, Mach III industrial clutches ensure torque transmission in absence of air pressure or during power-off conditions. Regular- and heavy-duty models offer fixed torque transmission from 506-24,375 lb-in. and release when air pressure is applied to overcome spring pressure. Mounted at end of shaft, clutches include finished pilot to facilitate mounting of sprocket or pulley and...

Torque Limiter Solution Significantly Reduces Downtime Problems

Mach III was contacted by a power generation facility in which large, manually-operated control valves are utilized. The quarter-turn valves, located 16 feet in the air, are driven through right angle worm reducers. In as much as human beings are not equipped with torque sensors in their muscles, costly downtime failures were occurring when workers applied excess force to the worm reducer via the...
