Electrically Actuated Clutches
An Electromagnetic Actuated Clutch, sometimes abbreviated as ‘E.M.’ clutch operates electrically, but transmits torque mechanically. When powered on, the stator produces an electromagnetic field that connects the armature to the rotor. The input shaft (rotor) then transmits rotation to the driven armature, which may have a sprocket, pulley, or shaft mounted to it. These electromagnetic clutches provide faster and smoother operation than standard mechanical clutches. Since there are no mechanical linkages are required to control their operation, more options exist for its mounting location within the machine.
As the name suggests, Electromagnetic Actuated Clutches function by utilizing the electromagnetic force created by an energized coil. Common applications for actuated clutches include:
- Printing Machines
- Bookbinding/Paper Processing
- Food Processing Equipment
- Packaging Machinery
- Factory Automation
- Textile Processing
- Entrance/Exit Gates
- Conveyor Drives
- Factory automation
- Textile processing
- Entrance/exit gates
- Conveyor drives
Miki Pulley Electromagnetic Actuated Clutches
Miki Pulley’s electromagnetic actuated clutches provide accurate, reliable control for a variety of industrial motion control and power transmission applications. When installed between the drive source and the driven load, our actuated clutches precisely engage and disengage rotational power. With decades of experience, we have tested and refined our clutch designs to deliver unparalleled quality and reliability.
We provide high quality, high performance actuated clutches to OEMs in numerous industries worldwide. Our electromagnetic actuated clutches have proven their value time and again, consistently surpassing customer requirements in terms of quality and service life. We offer actuated clutches in a wide range of sizes and configurations, with shaft-mount or flange-mount options available.
The three models below (101, CSZ, and CS) can be differentiated easily:
- The 101 clutch is a flange-mounted type, with no integrated bearing.
- The CSZ has an integrated bearing, allowing for easy installation.
- The CS clutch is a shaft-mounted type, with no integrated bearing.
