Engaging & Disengaging A Load


Nexen Tooth Clutches

A tooth clutch, or multiple tooth clutches can be mounted on a single shaft providing synchronization, engaging at the same place every time, and simulating various operating specifications.

A very good solution to ensure the necessary timing for an entire machine system.

Tooth Clutch

Product Highlights

  • Accurately adjustable torque
  • Air-engaged/spring-released or Spring-engaged/air released
  • Single or multi-position designs
  • Variable mounting options on either the motor or driven shaft with a pulley, sprocket, or flexible coupling on the pilot

Typical Applications

  • Filling & Capping machines
  • Dynamometers
  • Hydrostatic drive systems
  • Accurate Positioning Registration
  • Reversing/multi-speed

Nexen Friction Clutches

A manufacturer of packaging and filling machines required small, reliable clutches in their capping machines.

These clutches tighten the caps onto containers and bottles and consistent torque delivery is critical for repeatability.

The clutch output torque also needed to be adjustable for different caps types and torque levels.

Nexen Friction Clutch

Product Highlights

  • Air-engaged/spring-released
  • Accurately adjustable torque
  • High heat dissipation and dynamic torque
  • Variable mounting options on either the motor or driven shaft with a pulley, sprocket, or flexible coupling on the pilot

Typical Applications

  • Connect/disconnect
