Clutches and Couplings suit capping and labeling machines.

Press Release Summary:

Permanent magnet hysteresis clutches and couplings transmit rotational torque while allowing for precise overload slipping. When accommodating proper heat dissipation, flexible designs allow for unlimited adjustment of torque. Hysteresis designs eliminate cogging associated with permanent magnet devices. Unique designs, constructed from 100% stainless steel, suit wash down environments or capping corrosive material.

Rimtec's Hysteresis Clutches are Perfect Solution for Capping and Labeling Machines

Rimtec's specialty permanent magnet hysteresis clutches and couplings are ideal for packaging applications such as bottle cap tightening. Permanent magnet hysteresis clutches transmit rotational torque while allowing for precise overload slipping for a smooth, reliable torque transmission. Capping machines now can have an overload clutch with virtually infinite life cycle custom fitted to pre-existing machine or clutch designs.

Rimtec's unique and flexible design allows for unlimited adjustment of the torque while also accommodating the proper heat dissipation. The hysteresis design eliminates "cogging" usually associated with other permanent magnet devices. Special designs are constructed from 100% stainless steel for wash down environments or for capping corrosive material.

Other applications include tension control take-ups for labeling machines or tape dispensing machines. Rimtec's engineering knowledge allows for custom solutions to be designed and manufactured without the custom solution lead-time and price.
