Press Clutches & Brakes

CBC Clutch/Brake Combination

The Eaton CBC combines an air actuated disc clutch and a spring applied disc brake. Due to the CBC’s simple design, overlapping can’t occur between clutching and braking. This combination clutch/brake is ideally suited for high speed, high cyclic applications.

Dynamic brake torque range: 10,900 to 135,000 lb-in (1,231 to 15,253 Nm)
Static clutch torque range: 18,700 to 290,000 lb-in (2,113 to 32,765 Nm)
Typical applications: Punching machines, printing machines, shears, stamping and forming presses

CCB – Clutch/Brake Combination

Wichita Clutch/Brake Combination (CCB) units provide fast, smooth cycling for stamping presses and metal forming equipment by combining a high performance clutch and spring set brake in a compact assembly. A single air tube actuates both the single plate clutch and the single plate brake.

Torque range –23,000 to 540,600 lb-in (Clutch), 4,500 to 258,400 lb-in (Brake)
Typical applications – Stamping Presses, Can Making Equipment

Low Inertia Clutches and Brakes

Wichita Low Inertia clutches and brakes are air applied, spring released disc style units that develop torque proportional to the air pressure applied. The units are designed to be free from effects of centrifugal force and self-energization. Low inertia start/stop parts reduce acceleration times, which allows more cycles per minute, as well as reducing heat generation.

Torque range – 3,160 to 17,850,000 lb-in (340 to 1,204,000 Nm)
Typical applications – Presses, Shears, Bulk Material Handling and General Industrial Equipment

Lutex LKB Clutch/Brake

The Desch Lutex LKB combination clutch/brake (C-B-C) has a low moment of inertia and a compact design. The brake is spring applied, and when sufficient air pressure is applied, the brake disengages, engaging the clutch. The LKB series covers most standard clutch/brake mounting arrangements.

Clutch torque: 184 to 84,820 lb-ft (250 to 115,000 Nm)
Brake torque: 103 to 47,941 lb-ft (140 to 65,000 Nm)
Typical applications: Presses, shears

Spring Set Brakes

Wichita Clutch Spring Set Brakes (SSB) are ideal for safe protection of process equipment. The units are similar to the Low Inertia units and designed to be free from effects of centrifugal force and self-energization. Low inertia start/stop parts reduce acceleration times which allows more cycles per minute as well as reducing heat generated.

Torque range – 451 to 5,355,000 lb-in (51 to 605,016 Nm)
Typical applications – Presses, Shears, Bulk Material Handling and General Industrial Equipment
