Cone Clutch Design Equations

By angling the contacting surfaces, the torque capacity is increased; for example, for an angle of 9.6° the capacity is increased by a factor of 6.

θ = cone angle (to the shaft axis, from 8° upwards).

CLutch Disk

The theory is the same as for the disk clutch but with an effective coefficient of friction.
