Clutches and brakes are a prudent addition to constant speed motor/reducer drives and adjustable speed systems - and are the right choice when high inertia loads exist or frequent starts and stops exceed the capabilities of standard motors.

Boston Gear's clutch and brake designs are the result of many years of manufacturing and application experience. As such, they are both rugged and reliable, providing maximum performance. Our clutch and brake product line includes four major groups: C-face clutch/brakes, C-face clutches, foot mounted clutch/brakes and shaft mounted clutches, brakes and combination clutch/brakes .
