Morse® Mechanical CAM Clutches use a cam or wedging element to lock the inner and outer races of the clutch. This transmits torque in only one direction. CAM clutches are often referred to as freewheels, sprag, overrunning, backstop or one-way clutches. These clutches are used for three basic modes of operation: Overrunning, Indexing and Backstopping.
Morse CAM clutches set the standard for higher overrunning speeds, greater torque capacities and longer service life. Morse clutches offer one of the most complete offerings in the industry.
