Formsprag and Marland Product Factory School

Formsprag Clutch Logo

A series of product training schools on both Formsprag and Marland products will be conducted at the Formsprag Clutch Plant in Warren, Michigan. These Overrunning Clutch Factory Schools are designed to expand on the product curriculum taught in the Warner Electric Basic School. Emphasis is on understanding both Sprag and Ramp & Roller clutch basic principles and on applying them. Each two and ½ day school will cover Formsprag, Stieber and Marland clutch designs, applications, selection process, lubrication, rebuild program, and how to sell against competition. This school also includes hands-on experience in assembling an FSO-500 clutch and changing the rotation with the Sprag retainer assembly. Class size is limited to 6 people in an effort to provide for the best learning environment.

This school is designed for Distributors. Formsprag provides the meals and local accommodations in Warren, MI. All other travel and personal expenses are the responsibility of the individual participant. This year’s school schedule is as follows:
