Clutches & Brakes

A clutch is a rotating mechanical device that provides driving force to another mechanism as required. The clutch has two rotating shafts: the driving member shaft is attached to the motor or other power unit, while the driven member shaft provides output power. When the driven member is fixed to the mechanism’s frame, it functions as a brake.

There are several types of clutches, including multiple plate clutches and vehicular clutches. The former features several driving members interleaved with corresponding driven members, for use in race cars, automatic transmissions, motorcycles, and some diesel locomotives. Vehicular clutches feature one or more friction discs that are pressed tightly together or against a flywheel using springs, for use in manual transmissions, air conditioning compressors, and engine cooling fans. Other types include cone clutches, slip clutches, and overrunning clutches.
