High speed multiple disc electromagnetic wet brakes


Ogura's multiple disk clutches and brakes come in both a dry or "wet" type. The wet (in oil) type can run approximately 3 times faster than that dry type. This is because the oil helps dissipate heat generated at higher RPMs, but you may find it surprising that the wet type can also produce higher operating torque, both statically and dynamically.

Ogura products are manufactured in Europe, North and South America and Asia. Manufacturing plants are ISO9001, 14001 and TS16949 compliant. Clutches and brakes are RoHS compliant.

UK, European and Scandinavian customers please contact Michel Hehnen at All other inquiries should go to Jim Andes at
