Mechanical Torque Clutch

Mechanical Torque Clutch

Mechanical Torque Clutch

I'm currently looking for small (1.65 dia x 1" H)mechanical torque clutchs that will disengage at 3 torque ranges 20 in-lb, 75 in-lb, 150 in-lb).  The clutch must be able to be used in CW & CCW.  If there is nothing out in the market, what would be the best way of designing this?  Would a simple ball and spring pushing against a round shaft with dimples work?


RE: Mechanical Torque Clutch

Would suggest you contact a company called Stock Drive Products. If you are in the US their number is 516-328-3300. Or if you are in the UK like me then contact their distributor, Davall Stock Gears, on 01707 283131. Or you could go to the website www.sdp-si.com. They may well be able to help you. All the best.
