Nexen Group, Inc. introduces Size 80 and 100 high-torque tooth clutches to deliver more torque and flexibility than other products on the market. This series consists of more than 45 clutches in multiple bore sizes designed to provide high torque in a small package, and configured to drive/hold large loads. Models are available as air engaged, spring released or spring-engaged/air-released designs, and in flange-mount and pilot-mount versions. Nexen’s nickel-plated, enclosed clutches are suitable for use in wet or dirty environments. When equipped with rotary seals, they provide IP55-equivalent protection against contact with dirt and infiltration of water.
Nexen’s tooth clutch interface consists of close pitched, radially cut teeth that mesh under thrust force from the air chamber or from springs, providing positive, non-slipping torque transmission. Single position, ball/detent/tooth interface clutches offer exact registration of machine components. The clutch keyway, tooth space and centerline of one locating ball are aligned for easy orientation.
