Brakes and clutches are drop in replacements

Brakes and clutches are drop in replacements ZF Industrial has expanded its existing range of industrial clutch and brake products further to include ‘drop in’ replacements for a long list of other designs not previously available from ZF. Included in the list are models that offer a wide range of interchangeability options for units from a wide range of manufacturers. ZF Industrial has introduced the clutches and brakes on the back of its similarly expanding range of industrial gearbox products aimed at the machine tool industry. Based on experience selling ZF power transmission components into the UK OEM and replacement markets, Dave Morgan Sales Engineer ZF Industrial UK points out the benefits for potential customers. "There is a vast installed base of metalworking machine tools, packaging and processing machines in the UK and an equally bewildering number of industrial brake and clutch manufacturers worldwide. The engineers who are responsible for maintaining and overhauling these machines know that in most cases OEM supplied replacement parts are sold at a premium and manufacturers are notorious for having discontinued lines. "Our range and service offer a genuine alternative to this situation; the competitive pricing and technical advice we offer with our gearbox products has been transferred to our new wider range of clutches and brakes. The result is an effective ‘one-stop-shop’ for machine builders, repairers and maintenance engineers."
