Slip clutch vs full auto shut off clutch

The full auto shut off clutch screwdriver turns the screwdriver completely off once the torque setting is reached, assuring that no damage is done to the fastener or the joint.

 

The slip clutch screwdriver, also known as the cushion clutch, slips once the torque setting is reached, until the operator releases the activation lever. The auto clutch has a much smoother action to it than the slip clutch.

Also, the auto clutch has an accuracy of +-3% of the set torque value where the slip clutch has a +-5% accuracy of the set torque value.

 

Using slip clutches in industrial design

Slip clutches are commonly used to protect against overloads, but they serve other functions as well — increasing machine speeds, applying constant tension, and indexing. Full auto shut off clutch common usages are assembly fastening applications that require precision repeatable torque control.
