Multiple-disc clutch / electromagnetic
18 - 8 850 lb.ft, max. 4 000 rpm | MWC series
The MWC series is manufactured by Ogura. It is an electromagnetic multi-disc clutch, with torque range from 18 lb.ft to 8850 lb.ft, and maximum speed of 4000 rpm. The multiple disc unit's compact design can produce high torque rates.
Its stationary field design and oil lubrication system, are responsible for reducing wear. Thus, it requires minimal maintenance while increasing operational life. The disc brake has separator springs between the friction plates, which allows quick disconnection when power is released. These springs also avoid the disks from making contact with each other in the disengaged mode.
With the etched oil path on the friction disk, with special treatment guarantees fast response and quick release time. The MWB series is suitable for heavy duty operation.
