Resilient Sleeve Friction Clutch

The phenomenon of circumferential constriction of an interwoven double helical cylindrical mesh as a result of its axial elongation has been applied to a bi- directional clutch.

Selective drive between the driving shaft 10 and the driven shaft 11 is effected through foreshortening or elongation of the interwoven double helical cylindrical mesh 12 which is affixed to shaft 10 and loosely surrounds shaft 11. The driven shaft may have a roughened or adhered surface 11a offering a high coefficient of friction. The mesh terminates in a shouldered collar 13 which is straddled by a yoked roller assembly to transmit the magnet-induced movement to the mesh sleeve.
