Magnetic Particle Clutch Animation Video Created by Ogura


Ogura Industrial has created a new animation showing how electromagnetic particle clutches work. The animations shows an exploded view of the component parts and how magnetized powder can transfer torque from the input to the output in a clutch. Magnetic particle clutches are used on a variety of applications that require very fast response or torque control. Common applications include card readers, film and wire tension and labeling equipment. The video can be found on Ogura`s website and on our YouTube channel HERE. Ogura has been producing clutches and brakes since 1938. Over that time, we have developed over 5,000 different models of clutches and brakes.
