LKB Brakes

These Industrial Clutch LKB brakes feature high-quality non-asbestos lining materials. In these products offered by Clutch Engineering, maximum areas ensure excellent heat dissipation, uniform stopping distances, and long lining life. Industrial Clutch LKB brakes are spring-set, and air or hydraulically released. This design offers a wide range of torque capacities and release pressures, with total attention given to maximizing ventilation for dissipating large thermal loads. Longest possible spline length is incorporated on the brake discs to maximize the load-carrying capacity. Additional benefits include stable friction coefficients and lower maintenance costs.

Torque range – 4,500 to 1,360,000 lb-in (508 to 153,659 Nm)
Typical applications – – Presses, Shears, Bulk Material Handling and General Industrial Equipment

HC Clutch

The compact size of the HC Clutch makes these units perfect for incorporation within a gear housing. Clutch Engineering offers these Wichita HC clutches, which are oil-immersed clutches designed for end-shaft or through shaft mounting configuration. All torque transmitting members are designed to perform for continuous heavy duty industrial operation. All units incorporate provisions for forced oil cooling allowing high energy engagements to be made without causing thermal distress within the disc pack. Cooling oil is introduced into the clutch from an external supply. This oil enters the unit through axial holes located in the shaft.

Torque range – 8,511 to 191,028 lb-ft (11,540 to 259,000 Nm)
Typical applications – Marine Gears, Winch Drives and Conveyors

CBH Clutch/Brake Combination

These CBH Clutch/Brake Combination products are made for extremely high cyclic rates. Clutch Engineering offers these for use in applications that require high degrees of stopping accuracy. Industrial Clutch CBH combination clutch-bakes are oil immersed units with a spring-set brake and hydraulically-set clutch. Hydraulic actuation and precise control of piston stroke contributes to an extremely fast response time. Actuation volumes are very small and the fluid’s virtually incompressible characteristics means that piston motion times can be as low as 5-10 milliseconds.

Torque range – 30,000 to 90,000 lb-in (Clutch), 10,000 to 20,000 lb-in (Brake)
Typical applications – Turret Punch Presses
