Industrial Clutches are devices used to transmit power from Drive to Driven, whenever required by engaging & disengaging the clutch with D.C. power supply. Various Types of Electromagnetic & Mechanical Clutches are given below:
D.C.ELECTROMAGNETIC FLANGE MOUNTED CLUTCH
D.C. Electromagnetic Flange Mounted Clutch (Type: UFC) is a normally off type clutch having three important parts. The Rotor, which is freely rotating (drive side) & an Armature assembly is fitted in the driven side. The Stator (Coil) when given a D.C. Supply will attract the Armature plate towards the Rotor and transmission takes place. When D.C. supply is cut off the armature will back to its own position by means of sinusoidal wave springs fitted in it.
MECHANICAL ONE WAY CLUTCH – SPRAG TYPEMechanical One Way Clutches are unidirectional clutches, which allows the rotation In one direction only. These clutches are engaged automatically depending on direction of rotation & vice versa. These units can be used as backstops, Indexing Clutches or overrunning clutches.
TEXTILE MACHINERY CLUTCH (TYPE :UFC)
Flange Mounted Clutches Type: UFC is used in various textile machinery to transmit power, when ever required. The list of some important Machines are given below:
BEARING MOUNTED CLUTCH FOR TEXTILE MACHINESBearing Mounted Clutches are Normally Off type clutches. The Armature Assembly will be attracted towards the Rotor when D.C. Power supply is given to Stator & Disengages when power supply is cut off. These Bearing Mounted Clutches Type: UBC is used in various textile machines & some of them are listed below:
BEARING MOUNTED CLUTCHTYPE : UBC
Bearing Mounted Clutches are Normally Off type clutches. The Armature Assembly will be attracted towards the Rotor when D.C. Power supply is given to Stator & Disengages when power supply is cut off. These Bearing Mounted Clutches Type: UBC is used in various machines.
