TB Woods

Clutch Engineering is an authorized TB Wood’s distributor that specializes in the distribution of industrial power transmission products. We are proud to feature flexible couplings, disc clutches, and bushings from TB Wood’s. Our Applications Engineers will help select the best product for your application. Founded in 1857, TB Wood’s has grown to become a global leader in the design and manufacture of industrial couplings and belted drive solutions.


Highly-engineered TB Wood’s couplings (Sure-Flex, Dura-Flex, Form-Flex) represent the latest in coupling technology, featuring superior design and exceptional quality to ensure long-lasting performance. TB Wood’s also offers a wide range of innovative, high-performance belted drive solutions including sheaves, sprockets, belts, and bushings (Sure-Grip and Taper-Lock). TB Wood’s is a well-recognized industry leader for highly-engineered industrial couplings and belted drive solutions. All TB Wood’s sheaves are constructed of fine grain, high tensile cast iron, and have been carefully engineered for long life. These products are engineered to meet the needs of specific mechanical challenges, across a variety of industries. Their design and construction are able to satisfy the requirements of a diverse set of mechanical operations.


Reliable TB Wood’s products are utilized in many key markets including food & beverage, energy, wastewater, concrete, metals, pulp & paper, and material handling on applications such as conveyor systems, rolling mills, pumps, compressors, palletizers, de-barkers, printing equipment, fans & blowers, machine tools, and mixers. Clutch Engineering can provide dependable, long-lasting parts for almost any industrial application. For more information about these parts and other mechanical solutions, don’t hesitate to reach out to our team to ask about ways we can help your operations with optimal solutions for your business and your bottom line.

Dura-Flex Couplings

TB Wood’s Dura-Flex couplings are manufactured with precision and available from Clutch Engineering. The element is light weight and absorbs shock loading and torsional vibration. These high-performance coupling products have a two-piece element that makes installation easy. This ease of installation can also reduce the downtime of your machinery, for the benefit of your bottom line. Coupling must be guarded, both to prevent any contact with the rotating parts and to contain the coupling components should they fail.

Torque range: 190 to 39,500 lb-in (21 to 4,462 Nm)
Typical applications: Pumps, agitators, conveyors, paper mills, shredders, cranes

Sure-Flex Couplings

Clutch Engineering provides TB Wood’s Sure-Flex couplings for applications such as pumps, generators, hoists, and conveyor systems. These couplings are designed to support the absorption of virtually all types of shock, misalignment, and end float. Minimum shaft engagement is 0.85 * shaft diameter and no lubrication or maintenance is required. The lack of manual lubrication helps you to allocate efforts elsewhere, without needing additional time for the upkeep of this product. Variations of available parts and features include close-coupled, spacer, and split sleeves. These couplings are precisely manufactured to give you an optimal solution for various applications that are compatible with couplings and related variations.

Torque range: 78 to 72,480 lb-in (8 to 8,189 Nm)
Typical applications: Pumps, generators, hoists, conveyors

Form-Flex Couplings

Clutch Engineering offers TB Wood’s Form-Flex disc couplings for applications that range from general industrial equipment to specialized high speed precision machines. Flexible Disc couplings can be used in many use cases to support the operation of critical mechanical systems. These high-performance products feature all metal construction and require no lubrication. This gives them a long operating life and high torsional stiffness, while freeing up time that would otherwise be spent on maintenance. Special materials and coatings are available to defend the coupling in corrosive environments. These couplings feature very versatile designs and they can be customized to meet the demands of virtually any coupling application.

Torque range: 300 to 4,000,000 lb-in (33 to 451,939 Nm)
Typical applications: Pumps, compressors, fans, machine tools, cooling towers, printing presses, power generation

Disc-O-Torque Clutch

Offered by Clutch Engineering, TB Wood’s Disc-O-Torque friction disc clutches have the ability to function wet or dry, which gives your more options for your mechanical systems. These high-quality clutch products are available with hydraulic or pneumatic actuation. Standard D5 versions of this part are provided with a separate inlet for lubricating oil, to provide a continuous oil flow to the bearings. The have high torque density, long life, and are they are also self-contained.

Torque range: 50 to 1,776 lb-ft (67 to 2,407 Nm)
Typical applications: Machine tools, conveyors, pumps

Sure-Grip Bushings

Clutch Engineering offers TB Wood’s Sure-Grip quick detachable (QD) bushings for use in applications such as sheaves, pulleys, sprockets, gears, and couplings. These precision engineered bushings are easy to install and remove, which increases the uptime of your machinery and supports your bottom line. Sure-Grip bushings provide more clamping force than many other bushings, thanks to a more gradual taper. The tapered design provides a mechanical interference fit on the shaft. These Sure-Grip tapered, QD-type interchangeable bushings offer flexible and easy installation while still providing exceptional holding power for many critical systems.

Torque range: 1,750 to 625,000 lb-in (197 to 70,615 Nm)
Typical applications: Sheaves, pulleys, sprockets, gears, couplings

Taper-Lock Bushings

TB Wood’s Taper-Lock bushings are high-quality parts offered by Clutch Engineering. Their intuitive construction keeps the hub smaller, allowing closer mounting to bearings and other equipment. These precision engineered bushings are compatible with a great variety of applications and they are designed to provide a mechanical interference fit on the shaft. Achieving full bushing contact on the shaft is recommended to insure proper bushing/hub performance. These products are specially made to deliver optimal performance for many mechanical applications.

Torque range: 1,200 to 416,000 lb-in (135 to 47,000 Nm)
Typical applications: Sheaves, pulleys, sprockets, gears, couplings
