  • Publication number: 20100258400
    Abstract: Provided is an electromagnetic clutch, in which a plurality of magnetic flux shielding slits extending in the axial direction and arcuately in the circumferential direction are formed individually in a rotor and an armature, and in which the magnetic flux by the excitation of a coil inserted on the anti-armature side of the rotor is passed from the non-slit portion of the rotor to the non-slit portion of the armature and from the non-slit portion of the armature to the non-slit portion of the rotor, so that a magnetic attraction is generated to bring two frictional faces into press contact with each other and so that the two frictional faces are separated by the demagnetization of the coil. The slits of at least one of the rotor and the armature are formed to change in such a taper shape that the slit width at the frictional face side may be smaller than that at the anti-frictional face side.

  • Patent number: 7153228
    Abstract: A power transmission includes a first rotating member driven by an external drive source, an electromagnetic solenoid provided to the first rotating member, a second rotating member fixed to a main shaft of a rotary apparatus, and an mechanism for engaging and disengaging a plunger of the electromagnetic solenoid from the second rotating member. When the rotary apparatus is not used, the energy of the external drive source may be prevented from being wasted by interrupting the torque transmission from the first rotating member to the second rotating member by the operation of the mechanism for engaging and disengaging.

  • Patent number: 6914507
    Abstract: A yoke of an electromagnetic clutch includes a ring case, a coil assembly, a connector, and at least one contact. The ring case includes an annular groove and an opening. The coil assembly is positioned in the annular groove. The connector is positioned in the opening of the ring-case and includes a first groove to receive an end portion of the coil assembly, a second groove to receive a lead wire of a diode, and a third groove to receive an end portion of an external wire. The at least one contact includes three pairs of slits and may be inserted in the connector so that each of the three pairs of slits is aligned with a respective one of the first groove, the second groove, and the third groove to form an electrical connection between the end portion of the coil assembly, the lead wire of the diode, and the end portion of the external wire.
