brick, lumber, fiberglass, tires, automotive, wire, and many more. Please
see our list of application notes on many applications.
The Posidyne ® Clutch
brake provides extremely long life and is an excellent choice for high
cycle applications. The Posidyne ® clutch brake also provides near
servo accuracy in many applications. It is either air or hydraulic actuated,
and furnished in several arrangements including C-face, shaft in - shaft
out, and piggyback mount.
The Posistop ® brakes
come in several varieties such as motor mounted, double C-face, foot mounted,
and hundreds of special mountings. Torque ranges from 50 Ft. Lbs. to 50,000
Ft. Lbs. Utilizing the same oil shear technology as the Posidyne ®
clutch brake; they last longer, and engage smoother than the competition.
They can be used as stopping or holding brakes, with
air, or hydraulic actuation, and spring set or pressure set. Many of the
Posistop ® brakes are interchangeable with
Stearns, Dings, Warner, Nexen, and many other brake manufacturers.
The MagnaShear ® is
an electrically released version of the Posistop ® brake. Utilizing
the same oil shear technology it offers extreme life, and smooth engagement.
The Positorq ® brakes
are designed to slip at a controlled torque (50 Ft. Lbs to 50,000 Ft.
Lbs. These are used in tension applications
(paper, steel) and energy absorbing applications such as dynamometers
for testing transmissions, axles, shafts, or other components. Our oil
shear technology designed for slip applications is extremely smooth at
low speeds, does not present the stick slip condition of many mechanical
brakes, and have very long wear life, including the drive plates and friction
Many of our applications require a custom
design clutch brake, dual clutch brake, brake or electronic drive.
