  • Active Coils in a Spring
    there will be a diameter change as the active portion is deflected or extended. In the case of a compression spring, the active portion will expand as the spring is compressed. The opposite is typical of an extension spring. The action of a clutch spring tightening down on a shaft is typical
  • Getting up to speed with wrap-spring clutch/brakes
    No-slip clutch/brakes keep loads and drives synced up. A tape nip uses a motor and belt drive to power the input hub of a wrap-spring clutch/brake. The tape accurately pays out in increments determined by the number and location of stops on the stop collar. Wrap-spring clutch/brakes work at speeds
  • Selecting a Wrap Spring Clutch/Brake for Optimal Performance and Long Service Life
    Clutches and brakes are among the most critical elements of many motion control systems. The. two most widely used types of clutches are electro mechanical friction and wrapped spring. When selecting a clutch, electro mechanical friction types usually come to mind first, but the. frequently
  • Ogura Electromagnetic Clutch Helps Doctors Increase Efficiency
    In the May issue of the Design News Medical Trend Watch, an article by Ogura showed how eye doctors were using a spring-applied clutch to achieve a finer control of a vision testing table. The article explained how the MCSC spring-applied clutch allowed doctors to adjust the equipment
  • 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
  • 2003 Mustang Cobra
    at an awkward angle to the driver, making it a bit difficult to get at. The gearing is close and it's easy to shift into the wrong gear until you get the hang of it. The clutch, which is too stiff for my liking, combined with the hard shifting, makes driving the Cobra quite a workout. Our test vehicle
  • 2004 Chrysler Crossfire
    , easy throws, but gearing is close. Actually it's a little too close, as it is easy to shift from 1st into 4th gear if you are not paying attention. The clutch is smooth and easy to operate, with a decent amount of stiffness. The rear-wheel-drive Crossfire has an independent, double-wishbone front
  • Ain't that America
    suspension use unequal-length control arms, and a push-rod/bell-crank system which links to horizontally mounted spring dampers. The modular (MOD) 5.4-liter V8 provides 500 hp at 5,250 rpm and 500 lb-ft of torque at 3,250 rpm. The aluminum powerplant carries high-flow, four-valve cylinder heads
