- Case Studies
New Logan Hi-Lo Retrokits for your early and late-model Wickmans increase your machines daily and weekly output from 10-20% - leaving you room for additional capacity, productivity and profitability.
Positive, fast-acting Logan Clutch engagement enables your Wickman to change speeds much faster, and provides a more consistent and accurate cycle time than conventional mechanical and electromagnetic clutches.
Set-up personnel can position tools closer to the work piece, and reduce dwell time due to repeatable high and low-speed clutch engagement.
We replace your mechanical and electromagnetic actuated high-speed and feed clutches, brake, linkages, pins and lever arms with air-actuated, self-adjusting Logan clutches. By making the switch from mechanical or electromagnetic to Logan, you'll increase your machines, daily and weekly output significantly, through consistent and accurate speed changes and decreased maintenance.
Our quick-stop power applied brake prevents coasting and provides accurate braking for
bar loader positioning during feed-out.
