Shaft and housing requirements
shows the shaft and housing requirements.
Oil lubrication is optimum for these one-way clutches,but generally grease lubrication is mostly applied to thistype of one-way clutch.
one-way clutches are filledup with a suitable grease. These clutches need no furthergrease replenishment, but subject to general applications.In replenishing, good care must be exercised of toomuch grease filling. Too much filling could causeinterference with smooth clutching.
Allowable operating temperature
Oil lubrication : -10 to 120˚CGrease lubrication : -10 to 70˚CHowever, consult with
for application undertemperature exceeding the said temperature range.
How to mount
It is convenient to use a press-fitting mandrel asillustrated in
for assembling and mounting theseone-way clutches. In that case, press-fit the outer ring,with its stamped mark side kept in contact with themandrel shoulder.
In assembling, be careful to prevent the outer ringfrom twisting. Avoid to hammer directly the outer ringand, in press-fitting, bring a proper jig in contact withthe outer ring side face without fail. Furthermore,when press-fitting in an housing with shoulder, goodcare must be exercised to prevent the bearing sideface from coming into contact with the housingshoulder and to thereby avoid deformation of thebearing.
Also, shaft can be easily assembled by turning it inclutch idling direction. Where impossible to do so, providethe shaft end with a tapered (chamfered) guide tofacilitate assembling-in.
Precautions in selecting
makes it a rule to conduct functional verificationtests on its manufactured one-way clutches under varioustest conditions. However, be noted that the clutch lifetimecould reduce depending on the following factors;application to high load torque, high oscillation cycle andfine oscillation, etc., large radial load acting on one-wayclutch unit, and use of a shaft with lower hardness.Furthermore, lock failure could occur in the cases offast idling speed, frequent use in idling, and applicationincurring vibration.When using these one-way clutches under the specialconditions stated above, feel free to contact
When it is forecast that clutching functionfailure of one-way clutch(ex. clutch slip inengaging) could result in serious damage toperson or equipment, appropriate safety devicesmust be provided separately.
