Motion Industries contacted Mach III Clutch searching for a replacement for a Conway 858-14 Stationaire Clutch Mechanism sought by a paper mill.  The original clutch and adapter are underneath the guard in the picture on the right.  After reviewing the application along with photographs and drawings provided by the customer, Mach III designed the MBR3K-001.  An eleven inch friction diameter clutch with a 2.9375 Inch bore, the MBR3K-001 assembly (pictured below) includes both the clutch mechanism and a custom adapter flange.   The design is a variation of Mach III’s catalog model Heavy Duty Clutch Mechanism.  Mach III frequently adapts catalog models to match the specifications and mounting requirements of the application.  Lead times for such customization are typically only a week longer than for catalog products.

Mach III has assisted a number of customers seeking items no longer available from Conway Clutch.  While it is helpful to know the model number of the current Conway unit, it is more important to understand how the clutch is mounted and the function it is required to perform.  Digital photos or a sketch of the clutch and how it relates to the existing drive train are particularly useful.  For assistance replacing a Conway clutch or with any retrofit application, contact Mach III’s engineering department.



Replacements for Conway Clutch Units

Trying to find a replacement for a Conway Clutch product that is no longer manufactured?  Mach III Clutch can provide a solution that fits your current application and mounting requirements. Mach III catalog standard clutches displayed on this website are similar in design and function to Conway Clutches but are not typically suited for direct replacement without some modification.

Our engineering department will be glad to assist you with a replacement solution. While it is helpful to know the current Conway Clutch model number, it is also important that we understand how the clutch is mounted and the function it is performing.  Digital photographs of clutch and how it relates the existing drive are also useful.

Examples of Conway Replacements:

Conway 858 Series Clutch/Brake Combination Replacement

The photograph below shows a pair of Conway 858 series clutch mechanisms used on a Norton Hyprolap lapping machine.  Both units are mounted on a common shaft with one acting as a brake and the other as a clutch.  Due to the design of the machine, diameter and length were very limited.  To provide a drop-in replacement, Mach III created the M5R2K-001 clutch mechanism (link to drawing below) by combining the catalog-standard M5R2K-STH clutch mechanism with a custom designed adapter.  The pair cost the owner of this machine less than $2,000.00 USD and saved the additional expense of machine modification.

Mach III has assisted a number of customers seeking items no longer available from Conway Clutch.  While it is helpful to know the model number of the current Conway unit, it is more important to understand how the clutch is mounted and the function it is required to perform.  Digital photos like those on the right or a sketch of the clutch and how it relates to the existing drive train are extremely useful.  Contact Mach III for assistance replacing a Conway clutch or with any retrofit application.
