Video: How To Change The Position Of The Keyway On A CB Spring Clutch
In the new Techtips video from Thomson Industries Inc., John Pieri, Senior Product Line Manager Clutches and Brakes at Thomson, explains how to adjust the position of the keyway on a CB spring clutch. These combined clutch / brake units enable precise starting and stopping of loads with a continuously rotating drive shaft.
"It's very easy to do," explains Pieri. In the video he explains and shows step by step how to correctly adjust the position of the keyway: “Simply insert a tool - such as a metal ruler - into the clutch retaining ring. Pull the ring up until it touches the shift finger of the clutch spring."
Thomson's goal is to continually give the axis control market new impulses - while at the same time making its application-specific and technical expertise generally available. For this purpose, Thomson provides many training videos, webinars and technical white papers on the company website. (sh)
