Cushioned Clutch enables higher machine speeds.

Cushioned Clutch enables higher machine speeds.

In addition to overload protection, an increase in machine speed can be obtained by inserting slip clutch into system. Friction surfaces result in static friction being less than dynamic friction, which cushions suddenly applied loads. Tension on paper, wire film, and thread is gradually applied and is half of suddenly applied load. Machine itself will also be cushioned from shock, elongating...
