Solving Problems Since 1969
The Engineering Department — the heart of Force Control Industries — has been designing and redesigning oil shear clutch and brake products since 1969. Many items have become standard products while others are one of a kind. To support our customers’ needs, many products are modified to fit a particular application perfectly. This may be retrofitting a hard to get, inferior quality or imported product, customizing mounting provisions to fit in particular space or certifying non-standard torque ratings for load sharing applications.
Many custom drive packages are designed utilizing our standard product lines. For example, adding other components such as a belt, chain, motor or gearbox. This can provide the customer a complete “plug n’ play” package, eliminating mounting and alignment of individual components.
Many custom applications require modified or new products as Force Control is continually entering new markets that require different products. Today, we are designing and building many Dynamometer Load Brake systems. Each one has its own unique characteristics requiring different mounting arrangements as well as torque and horsepower levels.
