Clutches / Brakes

Ask A Question

A clutch is a mechanical device used to connect and disconnect the power transmission between the engine and the transmission system in a vehicle or machinery. It allows for smooth engagement and disengagement of the engine’s power to the drivetrain.

Brakes are mechanical or hydraulic devices used to slow down or stop the motion of vehicles, machinery, or other moving objects. They are a crucial safety component that allows for control and deceleration, preventing accidents and ensuring the safety of occupants and operators. Brakes work by converting kinetic energy into heat energy through friction.
