What is the EN toothed pneumatic clutch?
The EN toothed pneumatic clutch is a compact device designed to transmit power efficiently.
Their operation is similar to that of a double-acting pneumatic piston, making them versatile in a variety of applications. In this article, we will explore in detail how they work, their mechanical advantages and their possible applications.
Operation of pneumatic toothed clutch EN
These pneumatic clutches consist of two air inlets: one for clutch engagement and one for disengagement. The first inlet directs air into a chamber, which enables clutch engagement, while the second inlet is used for disengagement.
An interesting aspect is that the EN pneumatic toothed clutch can engage at idle or low speed, but disengage at any speed. This makes them extremely versatile in applications requiring precise control.
Compressed air supply
For operation, these clutches require radially supplied compressed air at a nominal pressure of 5.5 bar. This pressure is sufficient to ensure reliable and consistent operation in a variety of environments and applications.
Mechanical advantages of the pneumatic toothed clutch EN
One of the outstanding mechanical characteristics of these clutches is their ability to transmit high torques..
This is achieved through the use of Tooth Discs – Hirth Joint as a coupling medium. Hirth gearing is known for its ability to transmit force effectively and accurately, making it ideal for applications requiring high power and control.
EN Pneumatic toothed clutch applications
EN toothed air clutches find application in a wide range of industries. Due to their ability to maintain synchronism between the driver and driven, these clutches are ideal in situations where precise power transmission is required. Typical applications include:
- Industrial machinery: In manufacturing and assembly equipment, where precise control of the clutch and clutch release is required, these devices ensure consistent performance.
- Automotive: In transmission systems and gearboxes, where synchronisation is essential for smooth and efficient gear shifting.
- Aerospace: In aerospace applications, such as flight control systems and landing mechanisms, where accuracy and reliability are crucial.
- Energy: In generators and power equipment, where accurate power transmission is required to ensure uninterrupted operation.
