Magnetic Technologies’ brakes &
clutches are better.
Ball bearings or tapered roller
bearings for overhung loads (HD).
Numerous shaft diameters and lengths.
If you don’t see it, you can
specify “A” and “B”
Special clamping arrangement allows
easy disassembly and interchangeability
should you decide to change a shaft or to
service our brakes in the future.
The hysteresis disc is the heart
of our design. The heat treating and grinding
of this element assures years of trouble-free
We magnetize all our own magnets
and test 100% in-house to guarantee that
brakes you bought from us years ago are
the same as those purchased today.
How They Operate
important internal clearances are ground to tolerances
of less than .025mm (.001 in). Magnet Assemblies
(purple) surround our hysteresis disc (gold).
When like poles face each other, they produce
maximum magnetic saturation, forcing lines of
flux to travel circumferentially through the hysteresis
disc. This produces Maximum torque.
opposite poles face each other, they produce minimum
saturation of the hysteresis disc. The lines of
flux travel right through the hysteresis disc.
Combinations of adjustment angles between these
two extremes gives infinite adjustability. Because
there are no contacting surfaces, the setting
can be maintained indefinitely.
