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

TGW Logistics Group, a systems provider of automated logistics, 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 help develop 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.”
