Abstract

Clutch 10 transmits torque between pulley 11 and shaft 12. Pulley 11 has conical surface 13 provided with grooves 14. Shaft 12 carries a clutch member comprising cone 15. This mates with surface 13 and springs 16 that mate with grooves 14. Shaft 12 is movable axially so that the clutch member can be moved between a disengaged position dotted lines, and an engaged position full lines. In the latter position cone 15 abuts surface 13 and springs 16 extend into grooves 14 to provide a positive drive. When the clutch member is moved into engagement with pulley 11, springs 16 can be compressed by surface 13 into underlying grooves 17 in cone 15. This action provides a slipping friction drive until springs 16 move into grooves 14.

Clutch 10 transmits torque between pulley 11 and shaft 12.

Pulley 11 has conical surface 13 provided with grooves 14. Shaft 12 carries a clutch member comprising cone 15. This mates with surface 13 and springs 16 that mate with grooves 14. Shaft 12 is movable axially so that the clutch member can be moved between a disengaged position dotted lines, and an engaged position full lines. In the latter position cone 15 abuts surface 13 and springs 16 extend into grooves 14 to provide a positive drive. When the clutch member is moved into engagement with pulley 11, springs 16 can be compressed by surface 13 into underlying grooves 17 in cone 15. This action provides a slipping friction drive until springs 16 move into grooves
14.
