The Classifications Of Clutches And Gearboxes!
- Electromagnetic Clutches – These types of clutches operate electronically, but it is worth remembering that they transmit their torque mechanically. The EM Clutch is most suitable for remote operation, since no linkages are required as a means of controlling its engagement.
- Mechanical Clutches – These are the most basic forms of clutches, and can operate clock-wise or anti-clockwise upon request. Clutches are used whenever the transmission of power or motion must be controlled either to a specific amount, or over a specific time period.
- Splined Couplings – Splines are ridges or ‘teeth’ which are mounted on a drive shaft which subsequently mesh with the grooves in a mating piece and transfer torque to it, which maintains the angular correspondence between them.
A Splined coupling is the device that links with these splines for the purposes of transmitting power or torque.
- Speed Reduction Gearboxes – Speed Reduction Gearboxes are used when installing hydraulic motors onto self-propelled heavy-duty machinery, including farming, marine and earth-moving machinery.
