  1. slip friction clutch

    A slip friction clutch is a type of mechanical device that transmits or interrupts the transmission of power from the driving shaft to the driven shaft by manual or automatic means. In this clutch, engagement and disengagement of power transmission depend on the friction between contact surfaces, typically two clutch plates. When the clutch slips, it means the clutch disc and the flywheel are not engaging correctly due to worn out parts, improper adjustments, or oil contamination, which leads to reduced power transmission. This clutch type is highly used in automotive and industrial machinery due to its simple design, easy maintenance, and cost-effectiveness.
