SG Transmission has signed a renewed five year contract with TGW Logistics Group to provide an innovative clutch brake solution for a conveyor application that will be employed in some of the world’s largest distribution networks.

TGW Logistics Group, a global systems provider of automated logistic solutions, has been working with the experts at SG Transmission to find a solution for a mechanical roller conveyor system, which needed to be custom designed to fit within the existing system’s space envelope.

The solution is a combination of a clutch and brake developed with a design brief to withstand five million cycles with maximum load, in a 24/7 environment, with an extended life cycle.

SG Transmission has the in-house capability to work with the customer to provide a solution which developed the client’s previous product further. Paul Short, technical manager at SG Transmission, said: “This project was very challenging but we managed to provide an improved technical solution for TGW’s requirements. SG Transmission was one of only a few suppliers in Europe that was able to cater for the customer to solve the issue.”

SG Transmission is based in the north east of England, where it operates a state of the art manufacturing facility and in-house design office. It manufactures a wide range of electromagnetic clutches and brakes for a global customer portfolio.
