FEATURES & FUNCTIONALITY
Woodward’s brakes and clutches are employed in airborne and land vehicle actuation
 
Size & Capacity
Woodward offers brakes in both round and square frames in popular inch-series diameter codes from Size 8 to Size 50 (.8” to 5.0”), commensurate with many of our standard motor diameters. The available torque capacity extends into the hundreds of inch-pounds using both toothed and plain friction-type disc designs. Woodward designs can be rated for both dynamic- or static-only engagement. Many of these devices are offered with either power-OFF or power-ON to engage, and with manual-release mechanisms, upon request.
 
Winding Options & Packaging
Most brake designs can be wound for 28VDC or less, and up to hundreds of volts. AC-powered designs are also available with or without built-in rectification. Woodward brakes are primarily open-framed, but they can also be simply housed to limit contamination, or completely housed into vehicle-level line-replaceable units (LRUs).
 
Hysteresis Torque Devices
Woodward also designs and manufactures magnetic hysteresis torque devices that are completely mechanical wear-free. We have effectively used these devices for applications such as holding brakes (anti-creep), torque limiters, and magnetic couplings.
 
Accessories
Commonly supplied accessory devices include Woodward’s own gearheads as may be desired to greatly amplify the braking torque produced within the specified volume allowance.
 
Qualification & Related Experience
Woodward’s qualification testing and everyday service experience includes the full Aerospace/Military ranges for:
  • Vibration
  • Shock
  • Temperature
  • Altitude
  • Moisture, etc.
