Slip-Ease Clutches Offer An Improved Low Backlash Variant On Its Existing Line Of Multi-plate In-line Slip Clutches



Description
New Hyde Park, NY - Sterling Instrument (AS9100 Registered Manufacturer) offers a new, low backlash variant on its existing line of multi-plate in-line slip clutches.  Both versions feature an all mechanical design, which makes them considerably cheaper than electromechanical alternatives.  The slip plates are layered with friction pads in between, and an adjusting nut sets the slip torque by squeezing the plates together.  The outer plates are tabbed to fit into the output housing and the inner plates are connected to the input hub, so that the two ends disengage from one another upon slipping.  These clutches are commonly used for overload protection to prevent injury and machine failure, but have a wide variety of other applications such as tension control and positioning retention hinges like the ones in reclining chairs.
