Micro Clutches Designed for Compact Precision Applications



Miki Pulley CYT Micro Clutches are designed for precision applications.

Miki Pulley is introducing its CYT Micro Clutches for direct sale to OEMs in North America. These CYT clutches are designed for compact precision applications and may be easily mounted to a driven shaft. Further custom variants can be realized by pairing a sprocket, timing pulley, V-belt pulley or shaft to the armature.

The clutches connect and release power by being located between the input shaft and the load. The CTY stator is a bearing mounted type of clutch. "It provides an efficient connection between a motor and a load with low inertia, minimal drag and long service life," said a company spokesperson.

Two CYT clutch models are available to accommodate different RPM ranges: a dry metal type and a ball bearing type. In addition, three types of armature configurations are available for pulleys, gears and for combining both on shafts.

CYT clutches are durable and versatile with a straightforward design, consisting of clutch stator, rotor and armature. The clutch assembly features an integrated bearing design making mounting fast and easy while providing application concentricity and system runout. CYT Clutches operate well in temperatures from +14 °F to +104 °F (-10 °C to +40 °C). They have a speed range up to 3,600 RPM.

These clutches are available in bores ranging from 6 mm to 10 mm, with clutch torques ranging from 0.3 ft-lbs. to 0.74 ft-lbs. (0.4 Nm - 1.0 Nm). The CYT clutch utilizes corrosion resistant materials, and is RoHS-compliant like all Miki Pulley products.

"Miki Pulley's CYT clutches are suitable for compact systems requiring precision operation including printing equipment, packaging machines and web handling applications," said Jon Davidson, Miki Pulley Sales Specialist.
