Suco Robert Scheuffel

SUCO offers two types of clutches and brakes (centrifugal and electromagnetic) optimized for various transmission applications: Centrifugal clutches from SUCO offer load-free starting and slip-free torque transmission at operating speed while centrifugal brakes can lower or slow down loads at a defined speed and are often used in emergency braking systems quality and reliability are essential for such applications which is why the SUCO name is actively in demand. Electromagnetic clutches and brakes from SUCO are notable for their straightforward design and ease of installation. Like centrifugal clutches, electromagnetic clutches and brakes can only be used for dry running. Reliable torque transmission without residual torque is guaranteed by SUCO’s quality design and manufacturing processes. SUCO is committed to environmental sustainability and since 2006 has complied with the RoHS standard concerning the use of hazardous materials in electronic manufacturing. Whatever your pressure monitoring or transmission technology needs are, SUCO has the right product for your application - innovatively designed and built with German quality, precision and reliability.
Centrifugaalkoppeling Type F

Centrifugaalkoppeling Type F

The compact design and self-increasing effect allow this clutch to transmit remarkably high torques while needing very little space, resulting in a performance factor of ca. 2.5.

Because the tension springs are easily accessible and the linings removable, the parts subject to wear are easy to replace. Because the linings are not secured to the flyweights, some noise is possible in service, but normally not sufficient to cause a nuisance.

Self-increasing effect: the profiled hub has a special form which causes a wedging effect between the profile and the flyweights when torque is applied to the clutch. This results in an additional force on the linings and allows a higher torque to be transmitted.

Flyweights are normally mounted so that they can pivot on pins , which are fitted to a flange.

There are tension springs which restrain neighbouring flyweights until centrifugal force overcomes the springforce. Then the fly weights lift from their seats and the bonded linings contact the inside diameter of the clutch drum.

Due to the asymmetric arrangement of the flyweights, the torque that can be transmitted by this type of clutch depends on the direction of rotation.

Advantages:

P-Type clutches are extremely narrow.

In addition, the asymmetric pivot clutch is the quietest-running clutch in the SUCO product range. For this type of clutch, the performance factor for torque transmission is ca. 1.75 or ca. 1.25 depen- ding on the direction of rotation.

Thecylindricalhub carriesthreeflyweights which are located by and can slide on cylindrical pins.Inside the flyweights,there are tension springs which restrain neighbouring flyweights until centrifugal force overcomes the spring force. Then the flyweights lift from their seats and the linings on the flyweights contact the inside diameter of the clutch drum. Friction between the linings and the clutch drum allows torque to be transmitted.
