The Heart of Force Control Clutches & Brakes

OIL SHEAR TECHNOLOGY WITH UNIQUE FLUID RECIRCULATION SYSTEM

Provides Clutches and Brakes
With Increased Cycle Life, Higher Cycle Rates, and Lower Cost per Cycle.

WHAT IS  OIL SHEAR TECHNOLOGY?

Oil Shear Technology is a system utilizing the hydroviscous properties of transmission fluid to transfer torque between friction discs and drive plates in an industrial clutch or brake. This unique design provides smooth engagement and greatly reduces wear in dynamic (engaging) applications.

POSIDYNE PNEUMATIC CLUTCH BRAKES

Posidyne Clutch Brakes offer reliable, maintenance free, high cycle indexing for severe duty applications in the steel, mining, food processing, marine, lumber and concrete industries.

Long Life—Maintenance Free

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 pneumatically or hydraulically actuated, and furnished in several arrangements including C-face, shaft in – shaft out, and piggyback mount.

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, these brakes 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 ® brake is an electrically released version of the Posistop ® brake. Utilizing the same oil shear technology it offers extreme life, and smooth engagement.

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, etc.) 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 has a very long wear life, including the drive plates and friction discs.

Standard—Modified—Custom Packages

Many of our applications require a custom design. Custom modifications are designed to to fit special or old motors, mounting arrangements, space limitations and more. Complete custom drive packages can be designed and manufactured such as motor, clutch brake or brake, and gearbox all mounted on a base plate aligned and ready to install.

Our sales engineers will be happy to work with you to help design the proper package for your application.

Service and support is our primary goal, so when you purchase a Force Control drive, not only does it last a long time, but you get superior support when rebuild or replacement is needed. Our Factory Certified Rebuild service will put your drive in like new condition reducing the chance of unnecessary repairs. Our Emergency Response Service (not for all products) has a unit shipping to you the same day. You then return the old core which is then rebuilt and put back into stock for the next emergency.

Our sales engineers are ready to help solve your drive application. Give us a call at 513-868-0900 or Email info@forcecontrol.com.
