Altra Industrial Motion Corp. engages in the design, production, and marketing of a range of mechanical power transmission (MPT) components. The company sells its products in approximately 70 countries. Segments The company operates three segments that are aligned by its product offerings, including Couplings, Clutches and Brakes; Electromagnetic Clutches and Brakes; and Gearing. Couplings, Clutches and Brakes segment Couplings Couplings are the interface between two shafts, which enable power to be transmitted from one shaft to the other. Because shafts are often misaligned, the company designs its couplings with a measure of flexibility that accommodates various degrees of misalignment. The company manufactures couplings suitable for various industrial and specialty applications. Its various coupling products include gear couplings, high performance diaphragm and disc couplings, elastomeric couplings, miniature and precision couplings, as well as universal joints, mill spindles and shaft locking devices. These products are sold into different markets, including food processing, oil and gas, power generation, material handling, medical, metals, mining, and mobile off-highway. The company’s couplings are primarily manufactured under the Ameridrives, Ameridrives Power Transmission, Bibby, Lamiflex, TB Wood's, Huco Dynatork, and Guardian brands. Clutches and Brakes Clutches are devices which use mechanical, magnetic, hydraulic, pneumatic, or friction type connections to facilitate engaging or disengaging two rotating members. Brakes are combinations of interacting parts that work to slow or stop machinery. The company manufactures various clutches and brakes in two main product categories, heavy duty and overrunning. Heavy Duty Clutches and Brakes: The company’s heavy duty clutch and brake product lines serve various markets, including metal forming, off-shore and land-based oil and gas drilling platforms, mining, material handling, marine, wind turbine applications and various off-highway and construction equipment segments. The company’s line of heavy duty pneumatic, hydraulic and caliper clutches and brakes are marketed under the Wichita Clutch, Twiflex, Industrial Clutch and Svendborg Brakes brand names. Overrunning Clutches: The company’s products include overrunning, indexing and backstopping clutches which are used as a mechanical means of prohibiting a shaft’s rotation in one direction while enabling its rotation in the opposite direction. Primary industrial applications include conveyors, gear reducers, hoists and cranes, mining machinery, machine tools, paper machinery, and other specialty machinery. The company also sells its overrunning clutch products into the aerospace and defense market for fixed and rotary wing aircraft. The company markets and sells these products under the Formsprag, Marland, and Stieber brand names. Engineered Belted Drives: Belted drives typically change the speed of an electric motor or engine to the level required for a particular piece of equipment. The company’s belted drive line includes three types of V-belts, three types of synchronous belts, standard and made-to-order sheaves and synchronous sprockets, and split taper bushings. It sells belted drives to a range of end markets, including aggregate, energy, chemical and material handling. Its engineered belted drives are primarily manufactured under the TB Wood’s brand. Electromagnetic Clutches and Brakes segment Products in this segment include brakes and clutches that are used to electronically slow, stop, engage or disengage equipment utilizing electromagnetic friction type connections. The company’s industrial products include clutches and brakes with designed controls for material handling, forklift, elevator, medical mobility, mobile off-highway, baggage handling and plant productivity applications. It also offers a line of clutch and brake products for walk-behind mowers, residential lawn tractors and commercial mowers. While industrial applications are predominant, the company also manufactures products for various niche vehicular applications, including on-road refrigeration compressor c
