Precision clutches eliminate stiction

Precision clutches eliminate stiction The manufacturing process of Polyclutch from Huco Dynatork ensures the component's static friction is lower than its dynamic friction. This brings important performance benefits. When employed in mechanisms handling paper, film, wire or thread, for example, Polyclutch maintains constant tension with no sudden shocks that would damage the product. Similarly this new addition to the Huco Dynatork range ensures smooth and accurate starting and stopping of indexing systems and linear actuators. It is ideal for slip at the end of stroke. For protection during overload Polyclutch provides repeatable cushioned torque, the accuracy of which also makes the component the ideal choice for torque control on capping machines, automatic screw driving and valve control. It additionally works well as part of a friction hinge mechanism where smooth movement of lids, doors, screens and covers is required. Polyclutch complements Huco Dynatork's established Vari-Tork torque limiters with the new range meeting the need for higher torques. Constant torque is assured by a series of interleaved friction discs with soft springs that maintain pressure on the friction members.
