Force Control Posidyne X class clutch brake

Force Control Industries offers the Posidyne X class clutch brakes that feature oil shear technology that allows rapid and precise stopping, starting, reversing, speed change, and positioning – all without adjustment and virtually no maintenance.

Ideal for applications with frequent start/stop cycles, these motion control devices allow higher cycle rates (as high as 300 cycles per minute), and excellent service life (20 to 40 million cycles) to increase production rates with lower downtime. With high speed and precision, the X class clutch brakes allow machine designers to run at higher cycle rates and quality levels or design new machines for higher performance at a reasonable cost. They are ideal for many OEM applications including conveyors, packaging machinery, food processing, meat packing, dynamite/gunpowder processing, production machinery, extruder cutoffs, palletizers, feeders, inserters, loaders, cut-offs, fillers, and more.

The Posidyne X class features a split clamped quill feature that reduces shaft and key/keyway damage to the motor shaft associated with competitive clutch/brakes. The split quill collar tightens the quill 360 degrees around the shaft and key for superior connection.

Convenient options such as foot-mounting kits, manifold-mounted valves and optical encoders with closed loop positioning controls are available to fit most applications. The totally enclosed Posidyne X class is impervious to dust, dirt, chips, etc. With a washdown or marine-duty option they are resistant to chemicals, coolants, caustic washdown, weather, and more, making them ideal for hostile environments.
