Ogura has developed a new model, GT2.75, clutch brake for the outdoor power equipment market. This new clutch brake is patented both in and outside of the United States and offers engineers advantages in both design and cost over older designs currently on the market. The clutch incorporates a six hard rivet design in the backing plated field shell that resists separation due to vibration from gas and diesel engines. The new design also has a built-in connector for easy wire attachment. A simple mounting slot on both sides of the clutch makes for easy assembly.
The big advantage for the end user is when the brake plate wears, the plate can be flipped and the end user can gain additional wear cycles without having to replace the clutch. All units come with an integral key and high strength roll formed low inertia pulleys. To handle high inertia loads, a six-spring, 12-rivet design was used between the pulley and armature.
Ogura can build custom products as well modify existing standard models to fit specific application needs.
