Altra Industrial Motion brings a large number of engineering experts and power transmission products to a wide range of industrial applications. This year its Electro-Mechanical Clutches and Brakes (ECB) division is focussing on “Integrated Industry – NEXT STEPS”. It aims to educate its customers on the steps it is taking to maximise its manufacturing flexibility and how its products can be integrated with the other Altra brands to form an integrated power transmission package.

Comprising Warner Electric and Matrix International, together these brands form the largest manufacturer of industrial clutches and brakes in the world. Specialising in customised systems to meet the specific performance and installation requirements of each market, the ECB platform designs and manufactures bespoke equipment for modern industrial applications.

This platform encompasses designers and engineers who possess not only the technical expertise but also the language skills to communicate with customers directly, and understand the exact requirements of the client. Applications such as elevators, forklifts, crane hoists, textile machinery, postal sorting equipment; all of these examples require individual attention to ensure that the most suitable and reliable equipment is installed.

Mathieu Ruault, European Sales Director for the ECB platform, comments: “Our mission is to provide the engineering expertise directly to our customers, to ensure that the clutches and brakes specified for each application are perfectly matched. We will be welcoming all of our current and future clients on our stand at Hannover and look forward to discussing their requirements and solutions.”
