Mach III designs and manufactures clutches, brakes and torque limiters in custom c-face configurations. In this example, the customer needed a device to limit the torque between the motor and a coupling which was used to fasten a cap. The customer required the torque setting to be adjustable.
Mach III suggested an air engaged clutch. The customer would be able to adjust the torque applied to the capper coupling by increasing or decreasing the air pressure supplied to the clutch. When the capper met resistance, the clutch would slip.
Unique in this application was the motor face which required that the clutch mounting flanges be off-center from the clutch housing. The motor and capper coupling were sent to Mach III so the dimensions could be verified. The second photograph shows the finished clutch in place between the motor and capper coupling.
