BLM Automatic Clutch was contracted by an OEM customer in the City Waterworks industry to manufacture a custom clutch.
Customer needed an alternate solution to the originally specified clutch. The OEM clutch required alignment to be maintained between the driven and drive side shafts. In use the clutch continually failed because of the inability to maintain alignment.
BLM was able to offer a solution using a gear coupling which permits for misalignment and by modifying a design to fit the customer’s space requirement.
