The Latest in Clutch & Brake TechnologyMaking the Smart Choice in PT Components: The Latest Clutch & Brake Technology Looks at Reliability, Cost and Design Specifications
By Matthew Jaster, Senior Editor
In order to specify a clutch or brake for any industrial application, you start by making inquiries like a hardboiled detective. The job is all about asking the right questions. Is the brake or clutch smart? Is it suitable for the application? Will the component provide the longevity and durability the end customer is looking for? How will it run under certain environments or operating conditions? PTE has talked to some of the key clutch/brake providers to see what products and technologies are in demand as we enter the next phase of smart manufacturing.
