Linear Brakes

(15 companies)
Linear brakes are used to slow or stop linear motion in conveyors, web systems, and vehicles. Technologies include friction, eddy current braking, and hysteresis.

Mechanical Brakes

(181 companies)
Mechanical brakes convert kinetic energy to other energy forms, primarily heat. They decelerate shafts and linked components via friction between a rotating body and wear-resistant material.

Electric Brakes

(216 companies)
Electric brakes are assemblies consisting of electrical elements for the slowing or stopping of shafts in equipment drives. Electrical power is required to activate the brake.

Pneumatic Brakes

(124 companies)
Pneumatic brakes are assemblies consisting of elements for the slowing or stopping of shafts in equipment drives. Air is required to activate the brake.

Washers

(1,214 companies)
Washers are disks of metal or non-metallic material placed beneath a nut, an axle bearing, or a joint, to relieve friction, prevent leakage, isolate, prevent loosening, or distribute pressure.

Hydraulic Brakes

(145 companies)
Hydraulic brakes use a fluid to transfer pressure and actuate the braking mechanism.

Hydraulic Clutches

(83 companies)
...and eddy currents. Friction clutches generate friction between contact surfaces. Wrap spring clutches transmit torque from the input to the output through a wrapped spring that uncoils to disengage the clutch. Hydraulic clutches with teeth engage only...

Air Bearings

(37 companies)
Air bearings use a thin film of pressurized air to support a load. They do not generate friction.

Dynamometers

(90 companies)
Dynamometers are used in motor and engine testing. These devices apply braking or drag resistance to rotation, and measure torque at various speeds and power input levels.

Ball Bearings

(699 companies)
Ball bearings are used to provide smooth, low friction motion in rotary applications. Ball bearings types include radial ball bearings (deep groove and angular contact) and thrust ball bearings.

Non-contact clutches uses methods such as magnetic fields and eddy currents. Image Credit: Tiny-clutch. Friction clutches generate friction between contact surfaces. Wrap spring clutches transmit torque from the input to the output through a wrapped spring...
Jewel bearings, jewels and pivots are miniature components used in instruments and controls requiring low friction, long life and non-magnetic properties.

Roller Bearings

(548 companies)
Roller bearings are used in rotary applications to replace sliding movement with low friction, rolling motion. The principal types of roller bearings are cylindrical, spherical, and tapered.

Radial Ball Bearings

(380 companies)
Radial ball bearings are friction reduction, rotation devices that carry loads radially around its axis. A subtype of ball bearings, they operate through the use of lubricated steel balls placed between two circular guides. They are frequently called deep-groove bearings.

Screws

(1,348 companies)
A screw is a wide-encompassing type of hardware fastener that attributes its mechanical capabilities to the helical groove that extends around the circumference of the device's shank. These threads provide the friction and traction that serves a screw's purpose: to assemble or position two workpieces in relation to each other. While used synonymously, screws and bolts are not mechanical clones.
