About Magnetic Particle Clutches & Brakes
The torque is transmitted through a fine-grained iron powder
The main characteristic of the magnetic particle clutch is the possibility to smoothly change the torque depending on the field voltage. To transmit the torque from the external to the internal rotor, specifically alloyed and highly abrasion-resistant iron particles are inserted into the particle gap. Depending on the electromagnetic field, these fine iron particles build magnetic chains and thus transmit the torque. The power of the field determines the stability of the particle chains and also the transmittable torque.
