MISUMI USA, Inc. (Schaumburg, IL) has introduced a new line of One-Way Clutches, which are designed to operate on the end of a shaft. They feature ball bearings on both ends of the clutch to provide support for radial loads. The clutch allows for free spinning in one direction, while locking in the other direction, to prevent reverse rotation. Other features include:
- Availability in 11 different rizes, from 10mm diameter/15 mm length to 42 mm diameter/30mm length.
- Allowable torque ranges from 1.76Nm to 121Nm.
- An easy installation, according to the company, and a smooth, frictionless operation.
