Electromagnetic clutches are systems used in many applications like packaging machines, wire tensioning units, printing machines, etc. The main components of the electromagnetic clutch are coil, lining, body, armature, and rotor pulley. It becomes active when the system gives DC electric current to the coil. The magnetized body exerts an attraction force on the armature and transmits torque depending on the friction coefficient of the lining. In this study, magnetic and structural analyzes of the electromagnetic clutch are commercially used with a torque of 7 Nm were performed with a finite element-based Ansys software. As a result of the study, tensile forces, torque values, and magnetic flux density were obtained. The results were analyzed and data were created for future studies.
