A clutch (or friction clutch) is a device which transmits motion between two kinematic systems rotating at different angular speeds.

We produce the following types of clutch:

  • Multiple disc (multidisc), mainly for oil bath and dry applications at low speed.
  • Single-disc, only for dry applications.

They can be controlled in the following ways:

  • Hydraulic
  • Pneumatic
  • Electromagnetic

They can operate in the following ways:

  • POSITIVE:
    the control connects the transmission; the clutch engages when oil, air or voltage is supplied.
  • NEGATIVE (spring-applied):
    the control disconnects the transmission; the clutch disengages when oil, air or voltage is supplied.
