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 must be reduced. 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 or external heat exchanger cooling permit using a very compact unit in high load applications where thermal energy dissipation is a necessity.
Many of Force Control’s products are pneumatically 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, IP56 rated, housings eliminate issues due to dust, dirt, moisture and salt spray.
Modifications are available for hazardous, washdown and marine duty.
