Cam Clutchesare precision devices which lock the inner and outer races, through the wedging action of cams, to transmit torque in one direction of rotation; and overrun in the opposite direction. These units are often referred to as freewheels, sprags, overrunning, backstop or one-way clutches, depending upon their application.
Design Features Full Cam Complement The full complement of cams provide the maximum number of load transmitting members per given diameter. The result is a greater torque capacity sizefor- size than other clutches. Cam Design Precision formed cams made of a special alloy steel provide extra long wear and fatigue life. High Quality Components The clutch races are made of high-quality alloy steel with high surface hardness and core toughness. The races are precision ground, provide excellent concentricity and surface finish to obtain accurate cam rotation.
MG Series clutch is used for low to medium speed inner race overrunning. MI Series is for indexing applications. MR Series is for outer race highspeed overrunning applications.
