It goes without saying, nothing can be left to chance. And when it comes to controlled motion — when it needs to load or lock, open, close or adjust — in many cases, it’s SEPAC electromechanical clutches and brakes that are at work making it happen. And have been doing so in leading aerospace and defense industry projects for more than thirty years.
A lot has changed in those thirty years. Electromechanical clutches and brakes are increasingly becoming the control solution of choice for their clean, quiet, dependable performance, as well as their ease-of-installation, simplicity of design and electric control. Clutches and brakes have also evolved to address the increasingly sophisticated quality, performance and reliability standards of today’s design-to-spec installations.
For our customers and designers that can benefit from this information, we’ve assembled an educational lunch & learn seminar covering recent technology updates in our field. Topics focus on the most critical design issues relevant for today’s high-performance application requirements.
Best-practices for managing engineering resources, budgetary criteria, and project development time lines are also addressed.
The one-hour lunch & learn is provided on-location at your facility. There are no obligations, just a legitimate desire to learn about today’s most advanced EM clutch and brake designs and their capabilities.
Let us know your specific questions or design concerns in advance so we can be sure these will be properly addressed. Here are some of the topics covered:
- Comparing the advantages/disadvantages of the different clutch & brake designs now available
- Understanding best recommended friction materials for wet or dry applications, performance impact of various tooth profiles, and other design-related performance/cost attributes
- Determining power-off vs power-on; engaged vs disengaged motion control suitability
- Handling demanding environmental factors, such as magnetic fields, vibration or shock, need for specialized material coatings, etc.
Traditionally applied in rugged industrial applications well over half a century ago, EM C&Bs have evolved extensively over that time. Replacing hydraulics and pneumatics for many critical performance and reliability applications, they are now adapting to become the clean/quiet/easy electric motion control device of choice and preferred non-drive failsafe stop/lock/open mechanism for today’s most advanced designs.
