Need help coupling two parallel shafts? We offer a full family of Power-On Clutches
Electromate Inc. Posted 10/14/2019
Power-on Clutches are used to couple two parallel shafts. The armature hub assembly is mounted to the same shaft as the rotor assembly. The armature hub accommodates a pulley, gear, sprocket, etc., to transmit torque to the second shaft. The field assembly is mounted on the shaft and retained by a loose-fitting pin or bracket through the anti-rotation tab.
Typical Applications of Clutches include:
- Packaging Machinery
- Medical Equipment
- Postal Sorters/Readers
- Document Feeders
- Textile Equipment
- Mobile Power Equipment
Electromate offers a full family of Power-On Clutches, from Inertia Dynamics, for most applications. All Inertia Dynamics clutches are recognized by Underwriters Laboratories to both U.S. and Canadian safety requirements.
