Shaft to Shaft Friction Clutch Construction

Shaft to shaft friction clutches are comprised of a series of simple and robust steel clutch plates that engage a hub and friction rings that engage a housing. An adjuster acting through a spring and pressure plate provides tension to the plates and friction rings and can be connected to either the steel inner hub or the aluminum alloy housing.

How Do Adjustable Shaft to Shaft Friction Clutches Operate?

Shaft to shaft clutches serves two functions based on the installation type: protecting motors from burnout or maintaining tension in winding operations. Adjustable friction clutches connect two shafts of a device and change from a driving member to a slipping member once a motorized component exceeds the preset torque.
