Magnetic Particle Clutches and Brakes - Torque Control Without Wear
Magne's particle clutch is remarkably simple in construction and operation.
The two moving parts-inner rotating member "A" and outer rotating
member "B" -do not touch. They are cantilevered on the bearings.
The magnetic particle clutch's two rotating members are magnetically linked when the clutch is engaged. The members never touch.
When the magnetic particle clutch applies torque to the load, it starts without jerking. The load accelerates evenly, with no variations in acceleration rate. There is no bucking, grab or shock-not even a tremor from the clutch.
A friction clutch, however, uses two plates of metal or other material.
When engaged, these two friction plates slip (rub against each other)
until they reach locked-in running speed.
The Magnebrake® operates on the same principle as the Magneclutch® except that one of the rotating members is held stationary resulting in braking torque instead of transmitted torque.
Smooth, precise Magnebrakes® and Magneclutches® control tension,
torque and acceleration with no wearing parts. No gears to grab, no
pads to wear out. No fading, jerking or frictional wear. Efficient,
cost-effective Magnebrakes® and Magneclutches® keep your machinery
operating smoothly over a practically unlimited lifetime, and at the
same time reduce breakage, tearing and wasted materials.
