Electromagnetically actuated clutches and brakes, clutch/brake combined units and tooth clutches
Thanks to the many design variations, Ortlinghaus electromagnetic clutches and brakes can be used in many different applications. The electromagnet with its built in coil is an actuation unit that is totally free of wear. The operating voltage, normally 24V DC, can usually be made available and introduced into the clutch or brake without any problem.
The engagement, or disengagement, can be adjusted and controlled electrically. The areas of application of this product group are indicated with the aid of a number of examples. You will find further details in the sections describing the individual products.
Multi-plate electric clutches and brakes are used in the main and secondary drives of machine tools, speed change gearboxes and in general mechanical engineering.
Single face electric clutches and brakes, combined units are used in secondary drives, for example, on the front power take off shafts of agricultural tractors. In addition they are frequently used in packing, textile machines, and on conveyor belts. The product range gives the development engineer the freedom to tackle an almost unlimited range of applications.
Electric Tooth clutches are the preferred clutch for printing machines; in addition they are used in, for example, turnstiles at public entrances and on drives for gates.
Spring-applied multi-plate brakes are used as safety brakes on, for example, cranes, winches and other lifting devices.
Spring-applied twin face brakes are used primarily for flanging directly onto electric motors.
Stationary field Sinus® multi-plate clutches for wet-running with flux through the plates design.
