Project Description

Clutch Springs

Application: Agricultural Equipment Clutch System

Problem: Existing pressure springs were losing load over time, causing the clutch to stop functioning

The MWI Solution:

  • Analyzed the application design for environmental factors that would lead to spring failure
  • Determined the clutch assembly to be closer to the engine than previous models and that the high temperatures were causing stress relaxation of the springs
  • Designed a new pressure spring with improved performance in elevated temperature environments

Result(s):

The new spring design was installed and successfully reduced the instances of clutch failure in that model.
