Clutch Brakes


Featuring oil shear technology that allows rapid and precise stopping, starting, reversing, speed change and positioning – all without adjustment and low maintenance – the Posidyne clutch brakes are ideal for applications with frequent start/stop cycles. The unique motion control devices allow for cycle rates as high as 300 cycles per minute to increase production rates with low downtime. According to the manufacturer, faster production rates coupled with significantly longer service life than traditional (dry) clutch brakes (5 to 10 times longer in many cases) yields increased uptime, productivity and ROI. The product can be actuated by air or hydraulic pressure for use in plant or outside applications. The hydraulic actuation package includes a hydraulic pump, solenoid valve, regulators and a filter. A heat exchanger can be added for additional cooling. Multiple sizes are available from 1/2 to 350 hp with cooling options, control logic and mounting arrangements to simplify and speed installation.
