ELECTRIC & PNEUMATIC TOOTH CLUTCHES & BRAKES

SLIP FREE TORQUE TRANSMISSION 10 TO 16000NM

CONTACT US

Tooth clutches and brakes, also called toothed clutches and brakes transmit high torques with small dimensions.  The drive is slip free suiting engagement statically or at low speed.  Disengagement can be at any speed.

Electromagnetic operation is most common, normally engagement is by 24 V DC.  Pneumatic engagement is also possible.

Different designs and tooth forms suit standard and special applications.  Possibilities include

• single or multi position synchronisation of input to output

• backlash free connection

• sensitive and fast acting torque limiting

• operation in dry or oil running environments

• spring-engage electromagnetic-release models

Moenninghoff (also known as Mönninghoff) are a partner to Lenze/Techdrives and a specialist in toothed clutches with more than 30 years experience.  They manufacture standard clutches described below and also many variants such as toothed brakes, spring applied tooth clutches and pneumatic tooth clutches.

The most popular standard clutch in the Moenninghoff range is the type 546 with 24V actuation and a torque range 20 to 2200NM:
