Ogura Industrial has created a new animation showing how electromagnetic tooth clutches work. The animation shows an exploded view of the component parts and how they interact with each other. In tooth clutches, torque is generated by locking the rotor teeth to the armature teeth. The animation shows how this is accomplished. Tooth clutches are used on a variety of applications where very high torque in a small space is required. Most applications are industrial and common ones are medical equipment, machine tool, printing and processing machinery, security gates and specialty automotive.
