Industrial Clutch & Brake Upgrades & Retrofits

The Carlyle Johnson Machine Company offers upgrade and retrofit services for existing industrial clutch and brake parts of its manufacture. These efforts allow customers to modify existing units, which is often more cost effective then the investment is a completely new clutch, brake or power transmission.

CJM has over 100 years of experience in the industrial clutch and brake industry, and has upgraded and replaced many field units. Our engineering department is ready to assist with any complex design or upgrade challenges, and we will work to ensure you get the part you need.

Industrial Clutch & Brake Upgrade Procedures

The Carlyle Johnson Machine Company offers upgrades and retrofits to existing CJM units. Customers rely on us to be their trusted source for quality industrial clutch and brake products, and for advice on costs and applications.

To ensure maximum efficiency, our standard products are periodically upgraded and improved. Older versions are made available for service in replacing obsolete designs. As well, new designs can be implemented as direct replacements of competitors' parts.

Often customers request we change the mode of actuation, such as replacing a mechanical industrial clutch with an electric clutch with refurbished machine tools.
