Torque Limiting


CAPPING

Clutches can tighten bottle caps and fasteners. They can also provide an adjustable holding or pushing force.



OVERLOAD PROTECTION

Clutches can smoothly limit torque. Mount the clutch between the drive motor and the load. Set the clutch torque so the clutch will slip when a jam occurs, preventing damage.



SOFT START / STOP

Clutches can provide an adjustable acceleration to drives. Mount the clutch between a constantly running motor and the drivetrain. The acceleration can be controlled by varying the clutch torque.
A separate brake can provide a controlled, cushioned stop.
