  • Innovation Aha Moment: CVT - Clutch Roller Bearing
    The clutch roller bearing has not changed in a number of years. Depending on the application, four to five pieces are added during production as separate entities. John Zajeski, a senior bearing specialist, took a look at the process and realized an opportunity to consolidate the individual pieces
  • Electric clutches on the go
    and basic design easily incorporate into mobile equipment, providing flexibility, safety, and cost savings on gas and diesel engines. Mobile clutches typically consist of three major subassemblies. The field assembly is the coil and backing flange that provides magnetic flux to engage the clutch
  • Vehicle Transmissions
    of forward speeds. This is offset somewhat by greater driver skill requirements. Payoff is higher fuel economy because the clutch provides lock-up with each engagement. Recent advances here include shorter lever throws that require less effort. Gears have increased contact ratio, are smaller, and are hard
  • Smarter FEA software unburdens users
    static loads is difficult enough without having to consider how they change with motion and impact. In this Algor MES, an engineer modeled an actuating cone clutch using surface contact and frictional effects. The motion consists of the clutch engaging and disengaging as the shaft rotates.
