A clutch is a transmission and control device that provides for energy transfer from the driver to the driven shaft. A brake is a transmission and control device that stops a moving load, regulates movement, or holds a load at rest by transforming kinetic energy into heat.
Centrifugal clutches and brakes are used when input and output side should be separated during a standstill and the output side should work speed-dependant. Centrifugal brakes are often used as emergency braking system. They can lower or slow down loads at a defined speed.
Electromagnetic clutches and brakes from SUCO are notable for straightforward design and ease of installation. These clutches can only be used for dry running. Reliable torque transmission without residual torque is guaranteed. Once activated the field coil of the electromagnetic clutch creates a magnetic field using no collector ring. This magnetic field attracts the driven side towards the input drive hub.
SUCO designs and manufactures individual, customer-specific solutions when standard models cannot be used.
