THE MARK 8 SYNCHROTORQUE CONTROL SYSTEM: REDEFINING PRECISION
Ensure pinpoint-accurate control of your Synchrotorque clutches with the Mark 8. Our digital controller continuously compares input command signals to output shaft parameters, adjusting clutch clamping pressure electro-hydraulically to maintain your desired speed, torque, flow, or pressure.
First released in 1969, the Mark Series builds upon a half-century of expertise to take torque control to the next level. Discover how the Mark 8 improves upon its predecessor as the most technologically advanced controller yet.
