Original Press Release:
New High Torque PTO Clutch - Brake Developed
For demanding Turf + Garden and Agricultural applications the GT5 electromagnetic PTO clutch brake from Ogura is now available. This model incorporates a larger armature and rotor to generate a higher torque for the newer more demanding high horse power engines. The GT5 has a torque rating of 350 foot pounds. And although the unit had a higher operating torque the overall length has been reduced because the field bearings have been repositioned directly under the field assembly. A new double bend back plate was also created for this clutch to give superior strength and to eliminate the chance of back plate deflection.
The PTO clutch/brake includes both an electric clutch and a mechanical brake. The mechanical brake helps the output to stop after the clutch is disengaged. The unit is also designed to be adjustable for wear. This adjustment can be made while the unit is on a user's machine. This avoids costly down time.
Ogura was founded in 1938. They have since grown to be the largest manufacturer of electromagnetic clutches and brakes in the world. Ogura is ISO9001, 14001, TS16949 and RoHS and WEEE compliant.
