A Look into One of Our Manufacturers: Force Control

Here at Motion Drives and Controls we are a leading distributor and system integrator of drives and transmission equipment into the Engineering industry in the UK, Ireland and Continental Europe. We have been established since 1992 and over the years we have worked with many reliable manufactures to provide you with high quality engineering products. We are particularly proud of our working relationship with the manufacturers Force Control.

Force Control’s products date back to 1959, and they expanded their offering of oil shear products in the late 1970s. Since that period of time their business has grown from strength to strength and is now considered a worldwide leader in the manufacture of oil shear clutch and brake systems for industrial applications. They are particularly well known for their Posidyne clutches and clutch/brakes, which utilise oil shear technology in their wet, multiple friction plate designs to provide a high torque, low inertia package. An advantage of using oil-shear operation equipment is the fact that it provides a controllable, cushioned engagement that is smoother, quieter and more accurate than dry friction units.

As a company their business ethos is similar to ours, which is to provide you with durable and reliable industry products to keep your production running smoothly and efficiently.  If you would like to find out more information about Force Control then visit their website on
