A leading manufacturer of CNC burn tables needed a more cost-effective replacement bearing solution for its line of plasma, router, engraver, waterjet and torch cutting tables.
Specifying a brake which will operate reliably and efficiently, with minimal maintenance intervention, is a challenge that must balance initial expenditure with the through-life costs. The main factors to consider include more than simply the duty (whether the brake is being used for dynamic stopping, static holding or continuous tensioning), but also what sort of environment the brake will be located in.
A metal forming facility had experienced a major problem on one of its bending brake presses. The air-tube holding plate of the clutch failed dramatically when a large piece of the steel plate cracked off. The resulting downtime was very costly for the high-volume production plant.
A major metalworking shop in the UK was convinced to purchase a non-Wichita Clutch replacement steel hub for an 18-inch Wichita spring set brake on one of its main hydraulic shears.
A Formsprag sleeve-bearing FSR clutch was selected by a leading press OEM for retrofitting onto an older stamping machine. The machine’s original clutch had begun to show signs of wear after several years of service. The FSR is used as a backstopping clutch on the press feed drive.
