Tooth Clutches

Tooth Clutch

Dayton Superior Products, a supplier of clutches, shaft collars and other power transmission components, offers customization of tooth clutches to comply with exacting application requirements.

These clutches are ultra-reliable couplings used in gearbox and machine tool applications. The clutch is comprised of two halves: a moveable shifter side and a stationary bearing side. The two parts of the clutch work together to both engage and disengage axially. The axle can rotate or remain idle; the performance of the tooth clutch is strong in either case. A Tooth clutch generally has a longer lifespan than a drive shaft, ensuring utmost machine efficiency.

Dayton offers two types of customizable tooth clutches: coupling and bearing styles. The coupling tooth clutch features an internal keyway on both the stationary and shifter sides; the bearing clutch is outfitted with a keyway on the shifter and bearing on the stationary side. Both of these tooth clutch types function with a mounted shifter assembly to facilitate axial engaging and disengaging during rotation or idling.

Tooth clutches possessing at least three teeth lend strength and economy to your operation. Adding more teeth as needed allows for earlier engagement at slower speeds. The industry-leading engineers at Dayton Superior Products are happy to assist customers with tooth clutch design ideas based on application requirements.
