Electromagnetic clutches and brakes

SUCO electromagnetic clutches and brakes are used in construction machines, agricultural machinery, machine tools, pumps and compressors, centrifuges, belt conveyors and cleaning machines.

The working principles of electromagnetic clutches and brakes are very similar.

The stator body contains the field coil, which is a copper coil cast in synthetic resin. The clutch is activated by applying a direct current to the field coil. This creates a magnetic field, which electromagnetically attracts the armature plate towards the input drive hub with its friction lining, and so allows torque to be transmitted from the input side to the output. The axially-located output drive hub separates from the input side when the current is cut off . A return spring ensures that the armature plate separates from the input hub.

The stator body contains the field coil, which is a copper coil cast in synthetic resin. When current is applied a magnetic fi eld is created, which attracts the armature plate to wards the friction lining, and so transmits a braking torque to the output hub. When the current is off, the return spring pulls the armature plate back to its original position.

Among many other applications, SUCO electromagnetic clutches and brakes are used in construction machines, agricultural machinery, machine tools, pumps and compressors, centrifuges, belt conveyors and cleaning machines.
