The Ogura Industrial Corporation offers the Magnetic Particle Clutch and Brake. equipped with permanent magnets and magnetic particles transmit toque. The device produces a drag torque using the hysteresis principle. This allows constant torque levels, and lessens the possibility of high break away torque that occurs with typical friction devices.
These tools come in two model types, such as standard OPL units, also known as N type, and the OPL units to be supplied with a thru-bore or the R type. The N type comes with an integrated integral shaft that can be lengthened, shortened or adapted to meet the requirements of the users. The R type has a smaller bore units available in 6mm and 8mm; larger units are only available with an 8mm bore.
The drag torque is produced by means of a hysteresis principle. This allows for constant torque levels and eliminates the possibility of high break away torque that occurs with typical friction devices.
LONG OPERATIONAL LIFE
Permanent magnets and magnetic particles transmit toque, therefore, wear is virrutally eliminated.
AVAILABLE IN TWO TYPES
The standard OPL units (N type) come with an integral shaft. This shaft can be lengthened, shortened or adapted to suit a customer's requirements, such as D cuts, snap ring grooves and others. The shaft material is 400 series stainless steel.
The second option if for OPL units to be supplied with a thru-bore (R type). Smaller bore units are available in 6mm and 8mm, larger units are only available with an 8mm bore.
A virtual consistent torque is maintained because of the hysteresis principle and is consistent within allowable speed range.
