Clutch Applications

A clutch is a mechanical device that engages and disengages the power, transmission, especially from driving shaft to driven shaft.

Clutches are used whenever the transmission of power or motion must be controlled either in amount or over time

In the simplest application, clutches connect and disconnect two rotating shafts (drive shafts or line shafts).

In these devices, one shaft is typically attached to an engine or other power unit (the driving member) while the other shaft (the driven member) provides output power for work.

While typically the motions involved are rotary, linear clutches are also possible.

Modern clutch development focuses its attention on the simplification of the overall assembly and/or manufacturing method.

For example, drive straps are now commonly employed to transfer torque as well as lift the pressure plate upon disengagement of vehicle drive.

Below are some usual applications of clutch:

Clutch on Motorcycle



Clutch on Scooter


 Clutch on ATV/UTV


Clutch on Snowmobile


Clutch on Garden Machine


Clutch on Go Kart


There are and will be more applications of clutches. Science and technology is the power to support our growth.
