Ogura Industrial has created a new animation showing how mobile clutches work. The animation shows an exploded view of the component parts and how they interact with each other. In mobile clutches, torque is generated by attracting the armature and rotor to each other via a series of magnetic flux paths. The animation shows how this is created and how torque is transferred in a mobile clutch.
Mobile clutches are used on a variety of applications where an auxiliary component, such as a pump or compressor, needs to run off of a gas or diesel engine. Many common applications are air conditioning compressors, high pressure water pumps, air compressors, hydraulic, vacuum and centrifugal pumps.
