Brakes & Clutches

Breaks and Clutches

Brakes are essential to an application because they are used to slow, stop, or hold a load static by transforming kinetic energy to heat. From making sure you don’t hit other cars to preventing injuries if industrial equipment breaks down, brakes are crucial in both personal and commercial applications.

Common applications for brakes include feed systems, mining conveyors, bridge cranes, hoists, baggage handling conveyors, material handling lifts, and more.

Clutches are used to transmit torque mechanically and serve to start or adjust the speed of the load. Key factors to consider when determining the best solution for your application are torque, size, response time, power budget, and price.

State Motor has many brake and clutch options with a full range of torque ratings that will match any typical motor combination of HP and speed.
