Refrigeration Trucks

I saw the linked article below that explains the underlying reason why clutches slip and eventually overheat on refrigeration trucks. As you would imagine, it is not a design issue. It is a power issue. When the driver tries to run his microwave, blender, and hair dryer at the same time, there simpl...

Re: Magnetic Particle Slip Clutches - How they work - video

I noticed that this was a cable tension application. Can an electromagnetic clutch be used for web tension applications? Hi. You are right. They are used for tensioning. It could be paper, wire, film, whatever. The constant dragging builds some heat so you just have to size it right. For the most p...

Those micro brakes look interesting. Some electric brakes seem to be getting smaller and lighter. The over-excitation approach really saves on power too. :shock:
