friction clutch / electromagnetic
Thomson Industries, Inc.
Electromagnet clutches and clutch couplings from Thomson are used connect the load and motor by coupling two shafts together either through the use of pulleys, gears, sheaves or direct in-line mounting. An anti-rotation tab or flange can prevent the rotation of the field i.e. electromagnet assembly and the rotor and armature assembly are mounted securely.
The armature engages the friction surface of the rotor by coupling the two in-line shafts for the coupling type when the coil is energized, and thus drives the load efficiently. These clutches are designed especially to deliver static or low speed operations in various applications.
