Magnetic particle clutches.
Ogura Industrial Corp. offers a line of five small magnetic particle clutches with an overall torque range of 0.1 to 71 lb.in. They have a built-in flange for mounting and built-in support bearing with load capability for the input and output sections of the clutch. The magnetic clutches can be used to control tension, absorb shock or become a variable torque limiter, said Ogura. In addition, they can slip for extended periods of time without damage. Applications include tension control systems for film foil and wire, load simulators for motor testing and feedback devices for basic drive-by-wire applications.
