  • Clutches
    Driveline components transmit and control power and motion. As simple as this sounds, it is necessary on every machine. Brakes are basically a clutch with one member held stationary. The objective with both classes of hardware is to take two shafts rotating independently at different speeds
  • Clutch/brake chops blade power
    Electromagnetic clutch/brakes from Ogura Industrial Corp., Somerset, N.J., start and stop cutting blades in GPS-guided lawn mowers. A user programs a McMurtry robotic mower. The mower blade-drive mechanism uses an electromagnetic clutch/brake to start and stop the blades. Somerset, N.J., start
  • Getting up to speed with wrap-spring clutch/brakes
    within a few thousandths of an inch need highly controllable, precision brakes. Engineers typically spec friction brakes for these applications. But a wrap-spring clutch/brake can also do the job. It combines in a single package a clutch and brake plus an actuator (solenoid or pneumatic cylinder
  • Application Considerations: Pneumatic or Electric Brakes & Clu
    What are the main differences between pneumatic brake and clutch assemblies versus electric brake and clutch assemblies? Pneumatic clutches and brakes use air cylinders to actuate and provide the normal force to transmit torque. They require 30-80 PSI of a clean compressed air...
