Friction Clutches, Adjustable & Fixed Torque
Clutches are typically made from steel and are paired with another material that generates friction. This material can be fiberglass, Kevlar, brass, steel, engineer polymer, ceramics, or a metallic compound.
Fixed and Adjustable Friction Clutches for Synchronous Motion ApplicationsAt Ondrives.US, we offer a variety of friction clutches for all your application needs. Our adjustable and fixed torque friction clutches can function as safety override devices that instantly changes from a driving member to a slipping member once a preset torque is exceeded.
Friction Clutches can be installed between a motor shaft and a driven mechanism such as a conveyor system. If a jam occurs in the driven system, our slip clutches will protect the motor from burnout and protect the conveyor from additional damage. When installed as a Drag Brake, our clutches maintain tension on a winding operation by exerting drag on the feed spool. As an Overrun Device, these clutches absorb residual inertia of a motor when the load reaches a sudden stop or is braked.
