New Mach III NEMA C-Face Mount Air Clutch



Walton, KY - Mach III announces the addition of the NEMA C-Face Clutch to its line of standard air actuated friction clutches. The NEMA C-Face Clutch provides easily controlled torque transmission in four sizes for 56C to 213TC NEMA motor frames. The air actuated friction clutches have a keyed input bore and output shaft and are completely enclosed within an aluminum housing. Optional corrosion resistant and food safe finishes are also available.

Each clutch is designed to mount quickly and easily between a standard motor and gearbox and features a soft start engagement. Multiple facings engage under air pressure to drive the output shaft with torque output proportional to the amount of air pressure that is applied. The springs push the clutch facings apart when the air is exhausted and will maintain full disengagement in the absence of air pressure.

The NEMA C-Face Mount air clutch is suitable for use in a variety of drive applications including packaging machinery, food processing machinery, and material handling.

Mach III Clutch, Inc., for over 60 years, has designed and manufactured a wide array of standard and custom designed clutches, brakes, and torque limiters. The Company is headquartered in Walton, Kentucky in the Northern Kentucky-Greater Cincinnati Area.
