All centrifugal brakes and clutches must only be used in conjunction with a suitable drum or belt pulley. The operation of a clutch or brake without a suitable drum or belt pulley is forbidden. Non-compliance can result in injury to persons.

To accommodate the variety of transmission requirements, SUCO offers a wide and flexible product range. Both axial and radial drives can be supplied.

Rotor Version - K

This version without a drum is supplied when a clutch or brake drum already exists in the customer's set up, or a suitable component for this purpose is available on the output side. The drum must be accurately centered and securely mounted. Get Started »

Belt-pulley version - R

Where torque is transmitted through a V-belt, the belt grooves can be machined in the drum. Single, duplex or multiple groove pulleys can be produced in this way. Depending on the clutch size, effective pulley diameters can be incorporated. Get Started »

Unit version - E

Where it is not practical to locate both shaft ends or one shaft end and the drum, a bearing can be used between hub and drum. The output drive can be through a tolerance ring on to which a belt pulley, a timing-belt pulley, or a mounting flange can be pressed. Get Started »
