Axial Thrust Capable, Adjustable Friction Clutches

  • Axial Thrust Clutch
Slip clutches from Ondrives.US feature a shaft-to-shaft design and have an adjustable torque capacity up to 100 in-lb. Our clutches drive in both directions and slip when the torque setting is reached and are ideal for “soft starts” and slip at the end of stroke. Select from a variety of models with inch or metric bores and set screw fastening. We also provide modified or custom axial thrust capable slip clutches for applications with unique sizing or torque requirements.
 

Achieve Precise Torque with Axial Thrust Capable Slip Clutches

Axial thrust capable friction clutches provide torque control for driving, capping and other applications where axial thrust loads are applied. An integrated ball bearing allows axial thrust loads up to 650 pounds.
These adjustable clutches control torque for intermittent, continuous or overload slip and provide protection against intentional and accidental overloads. Adjustable friction clutches also work well as continuous drag brakes by maintaining tension on winding applications.
Examples of typical uses for slip clutches include beverage bottling and other automated applications where you need to drive items such as bottle caps or screws with exact torque and precision.
