  • Make It Last: Maximizing the Service Life of Industrial Air and Spring Actuated Friction Clutches and Brakes
    Determining how long a friction clutch or brake will last has much to do with application. Cycle rates, revolutions per minute and the air pressure required to produce the torque to drive or stop the load are just a few of the considerations. Assuming the unit has been properly sized
  • Clutches and Gearboxes
    cooling system. These limits give merely an indication and ignore such factors as ambient temperature, air circulation, application, etc. RM unit selection should be made by taking input torque, and by multiplying it by the service factor applicable to the application. Examples of service factors

  • Choosing Between Air and Electric Clutch-Brakes
    . It is generally stated as horsepower at a specific speed. All three types of thermal ratings are associated with the clutch or brake’s ability to move heat away from the interface, absorb the heat, and transfer it to the surrounding air. 4. Facing Life. Clutches and brakes are subject to friction during

  • Electric clutches on the go
    into the rotor and armature. Slots, called banana slots, allow the flux to contact the rotor and armature in more than two places. Multiple points of flux connection increase the torque of a clutch. Switching off power to the coil disengages the clutch. Springs between the armature and hub allow an air gap
