Force Control Industries Inc., Fairfield, Ohio, USA, manufacturer of Oil Shear Clutches and Brakes, will bring its traveling Roadshow to the western part of the U.S. and Canada from April through August of this year. With a route that includes Northern California, Oregon, Washington, British Columbia, Alberta, Manitoba, Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, and Colorado, the Roadshow demonstrates to engineering, maintenance, and plant management teams how Oil Shear technology can increase production while significantly reducing costs.

The Roadshow vehicle has an onboard generator and air compressor, so it needs no connection to utilities—just room in the parking lot or other property, Force Control notes.

The company explains that the Roadshow trailer provides firsthand opportunities to learn what Oil Shear technology is and how it differs from traditional dry braking technology. According to Force Control, the trailer allows visitors to:

  • See actual product working, including clutch brakes indexing at 200 cycles/min.
  • View product cut-a-ways to better understand the technology and how it works
  • Discuss actual applications with Force Control professionals (such as tension stands, shaftless unwind stands, conveyors, cranes, and other paper mill and converting applications)
  • Hear how to save money with the "No Maintenance-No Adjustment–Ever" MagnaShear motor brakes.

To learn more specifics about the RoadShow itinerary or to schedule a stop, mills are asked to contact their local Force Control representative or distributor or contact Force Control Industries directly at 800-829-3244, or send an email to info@forcecontrol.com with "Roadshow" in the subject line.
