Tsubaki launches new Cam Clutch and Mechanical Components catalogue
Tsubaki Europe has launched a new catalogue that contains its full range of cam clutches for general overrunning, indexing and backstopping applications. The catalogue also covers mechanical overload protection components, chain couplings and a cam clutch selection chart. The catalogue is available from Tsubaki as either a hardcopy or to download from the Tsubaki website.
The new Cam Clutch catalogue had been developed to provide readers with as much information and data about Tsubaki's cam clutch product range as possible, including technical specification. The range of products is suitable for a number of applications including contamination-free processes, high-temperature environments, wet and corrosive or dusty conditions. As with all Tsubaki products, the cam-clutches are made from the highest quality material; outer- and inner races are made of high-quality alloy steel with high surface hardness and core toughness. The races are precision ground, providing excellent concentricity and surface finish to obtain accurate cam rotation, where as cams are produced of special selected high alloy steel, with hardness option up to 2500HV.
To help customers differentiate between the different products that are available and choose the correct one for their application, Tsubaki has included a selection chart. The basic modes of operation are explained - overrunning, indexing and backstopping - and then a simple chart displays each product's suitability to specific tasks of each function.
Hiro Miyazaki-Tsubaki Europe, comments: "The catalogue is extremely comprehensive in the number of products that are included. All Tsubaki Cam Clutches are high quality precision components but obviously each is designed with a specific task in mind. This is why we include the selection chart; to make sure that every customer chooses the right product for their requirements, ensuring that they benefit fully from our expertise in the industry."
To support the catalogue Tsubaki has also developed a 'cam clutch equivalents' programme that is available on a CD-ROM. This new piece of software is designed to help customers select an appropriate Tsubaki cam clutch from another manufacturer's reference, further simplifying product selection.
