SG Transmission’s magnetic clutch saves military vehicle

03 May 2017

SG Transmission has designed and manufactured a magnetic clutch for a military vehicle.

With a diameter of 118mm, the non-conventional friction clutch has a multi-pole design which gives a comparatively high torque of 35-40NM for its diameter. 

SG Transmission was approached when the existing clutches in the vehicle became damaged and the same clutch design no longer existed anywhere else in the world. The engineering team designed the clutch to fit in the same space as the existing part, without any modifications to the vehicle and with comparable performance.

Andy Collinson, CEO at SG Transmission, said: “We have a lot of experience in the design and manufacture of high precision, electromagnetic clutches. This special military sector project was particularly interesting due to the extreme conditions in which these vehicles operate.
