Small Magnetic Particle Clutches

Operating range from 0.1 oz-inches to 130 lb-inches of torque.

Magnetic particle clutches are maintenance free and ideal for clean room operation or use in any production area where traditional dust emissions from friction surfaces are not permitted. Also called powder clutches, these units provide smooth and repeatable torque output proportional to electric input current.

DFE has partnered with Placid Industries to deliver high quality magnetic particle clutches perfect for use with our closed-loop tension controllers and load cells. In our experience, Placid Industries' clutches deliver some of the widest torque ranges available with ultra smooth engagement. These important characteristics make Placid Industries' clutches ideal for use in high-performance tension control systems.
