Abstract

Contact analysis in clamping-roller free-wheel clutches K. Diirkopp, W. Jorden Laboratorium fur Konstruktionslehre, Uni-GH- Paderborn, D~4 790 Paderborn, Germany ABSTRACT Free-wheels are coupling devices which index depending on their direction of rotation. The most important types used in industry are frictionally engaged. In the design of such machine parts an exact knowledge about the tribological system is mandatory for optimizing the system behaviour. The clamping zones of roller clutches have been tested in various recent research programs considering friction and wear behaviour as a result of contact processes by the Laboratorium fur Konstruktionslehre (LKL) at the University of Paderborn. This contribution will focus on the unique tribological system in a clamping-roller free-wheel clutch. Furthermore, this paper addresses the processes in contact during torque transmission. INTRODUCTION Free-wheels are self-instructing clutches. Whether the torque is
