Mechanical Brakes

For over a century The Carlyle Johnson Machine Company has manufactured quality industrial brake and power transmission products. Our product line includes a variety of standard industrial clutches and brakes, all of which can be modified to meet your needs and requirements.

Torque LimitersOur industrial mechanical brakes come in a range of options, including single and multiple position brake units, which offer the highest torque in the smallest space. Our industrial brakes feature torque ranges from 10-2400 lb. ft. (torque depends on brake model), though custom torque options are also available. Many of our mechanical brake models include special safety protections built into the design, and can be adjusted easily "on-line". For more information on designing your mechanical brake please visit our clutch and brake guidelines.

Like all CJM parts, our industrial brakes are recognized for high-performance, long-life and are well-suited to mission critical operations. If you don't see the mechanical brake you need here please contact us – many of our industrial brake models do not appear in our standard catalog, and all of our mechanical brakes can be customized. Our experienced engineers are ready to design and manufacture the custom mechanical brake you need, or build a complete power transmission system.

At CJM we are dedicated to solving even the toughest power transmission challenge.
