Flange Mounted Clutch Brakes

By Norman G. Clark

Norman G. Clark  - The outstanding range of Nexen clutches and Brakes has been further enhanced by the availability of Australian manufactured FMCBE units.

These proven pneumatic performers are an obvious replacement for electro-magnetic clutch brake units offering significant economic advantages in operating costs, initial purchase cost, parts availability and cost and service life over competitive products.

A full range of models are available in stock. The FMCBE range incorporates all the superior features normally found across the full range of Nexen products

  • Stopping
  • Holding
  • Cycling and indexing
  • Jogging and inching
  • Connect/disconnect
  • Accurate positioning
  • Controlled acceleration
  • Controlled decelleration
  • High inertia start or stop
