New Addition to Ogura Product Line - MS 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 MS series is finding new opportunities for machinery manufacturers in North America because of some of its unique features.

The MS series is a complete line of clutches, brakes and combination clutch brake units. There are eight sizes available ranging in torque from 9-738 lb ft. The key advantage with the MS series is that it can automatically adjust for wear. Once a clutch or brake is set in an application, the armature maintains the proper airgap so that time to speed or time to stop remains constant through the life of the unit. In addition to individual clutches and brakes, there is also a foot mounted version which is enclosed in a foot mounted housing with both double bearing input and output shafts providing excellent overhung load capability.

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 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. All manufacturing facilities are ISO recognized and conform to the ISO 9001;2008, ISO 140001, and ISO/TS 16949.
