Wardwell Braiding Machine Company is now offering an improved wind-up clutch for all 16C Rapid and 16C Speedmaster models. Our new magnetic clutch (part no. 005618) directly replaces our existing spring style clutch (part no. 16-2165X) offering constant tension during reel build-up.
Drive torque is achieved by adjusting the distance between two magnetic plates. Positioning the plates nearer together increases the applied torque (0-70 in.lb.)
- Direct replacement – Easy to install
- Constant tension independent of shaft speed
- No break-away torque
- No friction elements. Torque remains constant year after year
- Performance unaffected by oily conditions
- One year Warranty
