    Clutches can be roughly divided into three categories: electromagnetic clutches, pneumatic clutches, and hydraulic clutches. Hydraulic clutches can be divided into claw type and friction type according to the working principle of engagement element transmission.

    The jaw clutch is to use the teeth on the end faces of the two halves of the clutch to engage or disengage each other to achieve the clutch of the main and driven shafts. The advantages are that the transmission torque is large, the size is small, the structure is simple, and there is no slippage during operation, which can ensure the synchronous rotation of the main and driven parts without friction loss.

    The friction clutch is to use the friction between the engaging elements to achieve the purpose of transmission. The advantage is that the clutching and closing are stable, soft and without impact, and the clutching and closing can be carried out under high speed difference. As the name suggests, the pneumatic clutch relies on air pressure to push the friction components to transmit power and is released by the return spring.

    As the name suggests, the pneumatic clutch relies on air pressure to push the friction components to transmit power and is released by the return spring. Pneumatic clutches are used in various ways in various industries, especially pneumatic clutches are widely used. Compared with other clutches, there are many advantages, and even the same function has excellent performance.

    Comparison of performance advantages of pneumatic products and electromagnetic products:

  1. The reaction speed of pneumatic products in work is 30% faster.
  2. The dynamic torque of pneumatic transmission is 40% larger.
  3. The service life of the friction plate is 6 times longer.
  4. Pneumatic products only consume 60% of the energy of electromagnetic products.
