Magnetic Particle Clutches Provide Accurate Torque
Ogura's line of small magnetic particle clutches provides accurate torque control by providing five different model clutches that have an overall torque range from 0.1- 71 in-lbs. All five models come with a built-in flange for easy mounting and have built-in support bearings with side load capability for both the input and output sections of the clutch.
Because of their precise control ability, magnetic particle clutches can be used to control tension, absorb shock or become a variable torque limiter. Unlike friction face clutches, they can slip for extended periods of time without damage. Typical applications include tension control systems for film foil and wire, load simulators for motor testing, and feedback devices for basic drive-by-wire applications, like video games or more sophisticated vehicle drive-by-wire applications.
