Here are some pictures of a project that we have been working on for sometime.  I covered it a briefly in a post HERE, but now it's completed.  Together, it is a new style of computer controlled clutch for large industrial equipment like rock crushers and tub grinders.  It's a fairly interesting design as it completely contains all of the hydraulic and control systems so that the customer really is only responsible for hooking up two wires to get it functioning.

Basically, there were two parts that we were responsible for, the bellhousing and endcover.  They bolt together in the middle and house all of the internal components like bearings, shafts and clutch discs.  Ultimately, these parts will be cast out of steel and will involve far less machine work.

This particular unit was for a trade show that happened last weekend
