Clutches

Clutch/Brake keeps cool under heavy loads.

Clutch/Brake keeps cool under heavy loads.

Posidyne(R) clutch/brake is engineered for 600+ cpm and up to 500 brake HP. Unit transmits torque by shearing automatic transmission fluid between multiple friction discs, reducing wear contact. Fluid absorbs heat of engagement and dissipates it through housing. Clutch/brake comes in 11 sizes, each with 5 control logic options, 4 cooling system choices, and 8 mounting configurations.

Couplings enhance high-speed automation.

Couplings enhance high-speed automation.

Safety Couplings provide jam-free accuracy for inserting, stacking, bundling and storage/retrieval operations. They are designed with Belleville spring, and disengage in 2 to 4 ms in jam situations. Torque-limiting couplings incorporate precision roller guides and ensure zero-backlash motion control. They are available in bore sizes from 0.25 to 3.50 in. with torque capacities from 9 to 14,160...
