New Addition to Ogura Product Line - ACSB Series


Ogura Industrial is pleased to announce a new addition to our product line. Although this product is not new to Ogura, it is new to North America. The ACSB series is finding new opportunities for machinery manufacturers in North America because of some of its unique features.

ACSBs are both a clutch and a brake combined into one unit. When the clutch is disengaged, the brake is on and when the brake is disengaged, the clutch is on. The ACSB series uses multiple discs to transmit high torque in a small diameter. All units have a built in adjustment for wear via adjustment nuts. Although primarily designed for industrial punch press applications, the ACSBs can be used wherever high torque pneumatic clutch/brake is required.

Ogura has been producing clutches and brakes since 1938. Over that time, we have developed over 5,000 different models of clutches and brakes. Although Ogura primarily produces electromagnetic clutches and brakes, we also produce magnet particle, mechanical, pneumatic, hydraulic and a variety of specialty products. Ogura is the worlds 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. All manufacturing facilities are ISO recognized and conform to the ISO 9001;2008, ISO 140001, and ISO/TS 16949.
