1. Low Inertia Brakes for Uncoiling

    Low Inertia Brakes for Uncoiling

    A large part of WPT’s success in the metal forming industry has been the ability to adapt to the many applications needed to arrive at a finished product. From shearing to stamping and bending to slitting, our clutches and brakes can be found performing to, and in some cases exceeding machine manufacturers’ expectations.

    Recently, the applications team was called on to provide a solution for a tensioning brake application for a slitter line manufacturer. The customer needed a tensioning brake that was small but could still handle the heat generated by the application. After a thorough analysis of the data, it was decided that an air-cooled, Low Inertia Brake was the appropriate model for the job.

  7. River Foss Barrier

    River Foss Barrier

    Industrial Clutch Parts Ltd. recent success story involves the gate and latch systems at the River Foss Barrier in York. ICP engineers provided a number of fail-safe emergency brakes and hydraulic power units (HPU’s) to operate the River Foss Flood Barrier. ICP supplied a braking system that features a triple fail-safe system of torque-limited service brake with twin parallel e-brake systems as backup, for maximum safety & integrity.

    After many years of flash flooding, the York Water Authority commissioned the River Foss Barrier. The main aim of the defense is to prevent backwash from the River Ouse into the River Foss causing flooding upstream of the River Foss. When in an open position the barrier is held horizontally above the river, barges and boats pass underneath while regular, and efficient maintenance can be performed.

    The normal water level at York is established at 5m. Once the River Ouse reaches 7.8m the alarms sound a

  9. What is a Dog Clutch?

    What is a Dog Clutch?

    Dog clutches are specialised claw couplings available for static or rotating operations. Used to connect a motor to an output shaft or shaft-to-shaft where the user wants to occasionally, manually disengage the drive between the two.

    Dog Clutch is a type of clutch that uses intervention to link two rotating shafts or other rotating components like gears. It is most commonly used in the constant mesh gearbox. It functions by mating a set of regularly spaced teeth or protrusions on one half of the clutch mechanism to a set of identical recesses on the other.

    This type of clutch engages not by friction but by interference. It has the benefit of allowing both shafts to turn at the same speed without slipping and with minimal clutch wear. Dog clutches cannot be used to control torque as is the case with a friction clutch. The two parts of the clutch are designed in such a way that one will push the o

    2021 Economic Growth

    Exactly one year on from the publication of Manufacturing Outlook’s worst results in the survey’s history, the mood music has changed dramatically.

    In what has recently been a dejected pattern of quarters for the industry, manufacturers are now finally able to look to the future with earnest confidence. The industry is certainly not without its challenges, both ongoing and new, but the sector has now demonstrated that it can generate growth despite the still perilous circumstance.

    The first of these antagonising musketeers comes in the form of the novel Trade Cooperation Agreement (TCA) between the UK and the EU. The onus of new protocols and paperwork wreaked havoc for British exporters in the first quarter of the year, reflected in the 40% drop in exports to the EU in January. Since then, businesses have overcome many of the hurdles imposed on them by this new arrangement, with the Make UK report detailing significant export improvements compared to the start of th
