This Clutch application is most commonly used for safety in case of machine failure. This could be an escalator to an elevator, or even the PTO on a tractor. If a machine is lifting a heavy object and the power goes out, a clutch can hold the weight in place protecting all that is involved.

Backstop Applications

Conveyers: Stop load

Winches: Stop load

High Voltage Switching: Safety device

Textile Machine: Material feed protection

Industrial Fan: Motor Protection


This type of Clutch application can take a couple of forms. The main one would be a reverse direction preventer to protect the machine it is mounted on. This is where the Clutch is spinning without being engaged, 'Overrunning', until failure occurs. At this moment the clutch would engage and hold the process in place. The opposite application would be when the clutch is engaged most of the time, but overrunning is required for successful operation. The most notorious application for this use is the bicycle.

Overrunning Applications

Conveyers: Speed Compensation

Mixers: Motor Protection

Motorcycles: Gear Box or Transmission

Packaging Machine: Spins Down Freely

Printing Press: Ink Roller Drive
