New Low Cost Thin Profile Electromagnetic Micro Clutch


The new MIC-T series clutches from Ogura offer customers significant size, weight and cost savings over the previous series of MIC clutches. In some cases, depending upon volume, cost can be half of previous versions allowing significant savings for customers producing consumer and business printers and copy machines.

The new clutches are available with either a customer specified gear or a dog hub output which allows customers to purchase one clutch and then incorporate a number of different gears for their different needs. The clutches have achieved the cost and weight reduction by changing basic clutch construction utilizing an all plastic and powder metal design. Clutches are supplied with lead wire and terminal.

Ogura has been producing clutches and brakes since 1938. Over that time, we have developed over 5,000 different models of clutches and brakes. Although Ogura primarily produces electromagnetic clutches and brakes, we also produce magnet particle, mechanical, pneumatic, hydraulic and a variety of specialty products.
