"Introduction" – Of all the electromagnetic clutches, the tooth clutches provide the greatest amount of torque in the smallest overall size.
Because torque is transmitted without any slippage, clutches are ideal for multi stage machines where timing is critical such as multi stage printing presses.
"How it works" – Electromagnetic tooth clutches operate via an electric actuation but transmit torque mechanically.
"Introduction" – Magnetic particle clutches are unique in their design, from other electro-mechanical clutches because of the wide operating torque range available.
Like a standard, single face clutch, torque to voltage is almost linear.
However, in a magnetic particle clutch torque can be controlled very accurately.
Depending upon the output torque requirement, the output and input may lock at 100% transfer.
Electrical hysteresis units have an extremely high torque range.
Since these units can be controlled remotely, they are ideal for testing applications where varying torque is required.
Since drag torque is minimal, these units offer the widest available torque range of any electromagnetic product. Most applications involving powered hysteresis units are in test stand requirements.
Since all torque is transmitted magnetically, there is no contact, so no wear occurs to any of the torque transfer components providing for extremely long life.
Depending upon the output torque required, this pull eventually can match the input speed, giving a 100% lockup.
Therefore, the only torque seen between the input and the output is bearing drag.

A hydraulic torque wrench is a tool designed to exert torque on a fastener to achieve proper tightening or loosening of a connection through the use of hydraulics.
A torque wrench is applied to the nut either directly or in conjunction with an impact socket.
Hydraulic torque wrenches apply a predetermined, controlled amount of torque to a properly lubricated fastener.
The hydraulic torque wrench was invented by George A. Sturdevant in Houston, Texas.
The main characteristics of a hydraulic torque wrench which set it apart from other powered wrenches of similar function are that (1) it must generate torque using only hydraulic means (2) it must be self ratcheting, and (3) it must include an accurate method of determining the amount of torque applied.
A hydraulic torque wrench is significantly quieter, lighter weight and more accurate than pneumatic impact wrenches capable of similar torque output, making it an appealing alternative for many users to the very loud and cumbersome impact wrenches or torque multipliers which were formerly the only viable option for working with very large nuts and bolts until the hydraulic torque wrench was introduced.
It developed 182-190 hp (depending on the market model year) and of torque.
