GKN Stromag will be displaying its latest integrated clutch and coupling solutions for fully electric and dual mechanical/electrical driveline, including its electromagnetic 2-in- 1 clutch/coupling solution.
The electromagnetic 2-in- 1 clutch/coupling offers a single component capable of both controlling torsional vibration and allowing for remote controlled driveline engagements and disengagements.
The clutch/coupling combines torsional vibration damping with a fully integrated, intelligent, dry- running electromagnetic clutch that utilizes easily accessed on-board electric power, while its upgraded design can handle 2,500+ hp diesel and natural gas engine applications with common SAE 21 [in] flywheels and SAE #00 bellhousing connections.
It features a fully integrated and self-contained design for simplified installation and operation with minimum footprint and weight. It eliminates the need for an auxiliary pneumatic or hydraulic systems, which can help savings on installation space and costs.
The company says that package solutions can be integrated into SAE housings for direct mounting to an engine with a bearing supported output shaft for connection to a driveshaft, designed as an open running solution or even integrated directly into a gearbox.
GKN Stromag is the world’s only manufacturer capable of offering this solution with 100% in-house design and manufacturing under one roof.
