Force Control Clutches, Clutch Brakes, Brakes, Motor Brakes, Tension Brakes
and Dynamometer Load Brakes all Featuring Oil Shear Technology

Minimal Maintenance, No Adjustment-Ever! Reduce Maintenance Cost.

Force Control Clutches and Brakes are typically used where others fail. The severe duty capability make these products ideal for single line or high volume industrial applications where downtime is critical and maintenance cost and time is must be controlled. Utilizing Oil Shear technology these products are designed for maximum life expectancy - typically years, and sometimes decades longer than any competitive products, with little to no maintenance, and no adjustment – ever!

Unique cooling options such as fan cooling, water cooling, external heat exchanger cooling permit  using a very compact unit in high load applications where thermal energy dissipation is important.

Many of the products are air or hydraulically actuated for use within the plant or outside. Electrically actuated MagnaShear brakes are ideal for applications such as cranes, bulk material loading, conveying and sampling.

The totally enclosed housings eliminate issues due to dust, dirt, moisture, and salt spray.

Modifications are available for hazardous duty, washdown,  marine duty, high cycle,
