Applications


Power Off Brake For Short Axial Shaft

clock June 19, 2017 14:45 by author Mach III Clutch

The Need:D5F2R-001gif

  • Minimum 600 pound inches to hold a shaft stationary when air pressure (power) is absent.
  • Brake must fully release when 60 PSI is applied.
  • Ample radial space available to connect the brake housing to the machine frame, but . . .
  • Only 2.125 Inches of an un-keyed,  1.687 Inch round shafting extends from the  machine frame.

The Solution:

  • Custom brake design uses a shrink disc to lock the brake hub onto the shaft.
  • Brake housing connects to the machine frame on a 6.563 Inch Bolt Circle.
  • Brake provides 1,200 pound inches of brake torque, fully releases at 59 PSI.

Slip Clutch Adapted For Diameter Restriction

clock September 16, 2015 06:14 by author Mach III Clutch

T4A4H-001_highres_outlinedThis mechanical friction torque limiter was created in response to a customer’s request for a slip clutch with a 3180 pound inch setting and a 44L100 pilot mounted pulley. The first challenge of this application was that the outside diameter of the torque limiter could not exceed the diameter of the pulley. Mach III designed this unit with eight friction surfaces to deliver the required torque within the diameter restriction. 

The second challenge was that the unit had to fit on a 1.25 Inch shaft.  The design could accommodate a 1.25 inch bore, but there was no room for a keyway.  Mach III extended the drive hub and fitted it with a locking collar to connect the torque limiter to the shaft.

Mach III Shaft Connection Options

Mach III will modify its catalog model friction clutches, brakes and torque limiters or create an original design that connects to the shaft the way you prefer. Pictured are a few examples, clockwise from top left:

  • Traditional bore and keyway with set screw. Available in both Imperial and Metric sizes with standard or non-standard keyways.
  • Broached for a square shaft
  • Extended hub with bore and keyway, slotted for connection to the shaft with clamp collar
  • Extended hub with bore and shrink disc

Coupling Clutch For Keyless Locking Device Connection

clock July 12, 2012 10:15 by author Mach III Clutch

Mach III offers a variety of catalog models for shaft-to-shaft coupling.  Those catalog models provide shaft attachment with a keyway and set screw. 

For this application, the customer wanted to attach the coupling half to the shaft using a keyless frictional locking device.  Mach III outfitted a catalog model through shaft pilot mount clutch, C5A2R-STH, with a custom designed coupling.

Would a custom design make your assembly process easier? Mach III has custom adapters and couplings options for many catalog models.
