Ogura Creates New General Purpose Products Brochure


Ogura Industrial has created a new marketing brochure for general purpose clutches for gas and diesel engine driven components. These clutches help to enhance the value of an OEM's machine to the end customer by: *) The convenience of remote actuation (Wireless communication control) *) By disengaging when not needed, the engine can supply more power elsewhere *) Simple installation, no maintenance *) Operator convenience/safety; cut the power the clutch disengages *) In cold weather, the engine can warm up before the component starts up *) If the component isn't running when not needed, there is a fuel savings *) If the component isn't running when not needed, there is extended component life Clutches can deliver up to 40hp and mount on either engine shafts or component shafts and are available in a variety of pulley or direct drive options. Clutches are made to run outdoors and have epoxy coated coils and use e-coating for corrosion protection. Clutches can also be combined with soft-start controls to help increase belt service life and reduce engagement shock. Ogura has been producing clutches and brakes since 1938. Over that time, we have developed over 7,000 different models of clutches and brakes. Although Ogura primarily produces electromagnetic clutches and brakes, we also produce magnetic particle, mechanical, pneumatic, hydraulic and a variety of specialty products. Ogura is the world's largest manufacturer of electromagnetic clutches and brakes. Current manufacturing capacity is over 30 million units per year. To provide localized support, we have manufacturing plants spread throughout the world in Asia, the Americas, and Europe. Most manufacturing facilities are ISO recognized and conform to the ISO 9001:2015, ISO 14001:2015, and IATF 16949:2016.
