The Hilliard Corporation's Intermittent Drive Units (IDU) are packaged mechanical assemblies that produce precise intermittent motion-on-demand from a constantly rotating input. Intermittent Drive Units feature a self-contained lubrication system, making them ideal for dusty, dirty, steamed or washed-down applications. Foot-mounted housings with input and output shafts simplify installation.

Single Revolution


Hilliard single revolution clutches provide output cycles, on demand, from a continuously running input. The output cycles can be a fraction of a revolution, one revolution or multiple revolutions. This clutch typically provides five times the duty life of wrap spring clutches for indexing, shearing, bending, fastening, loading or similar applications. Each clutch is designed for a service life of up to 40 million cycles.

Other features include; positive engagement at any point of revolution without slip, lag or cumulative error, automatic disengagement at the same point of each operating cycle, no deterioration in performance throughout service life, ruggedly built and field proven, and controlled by a single trip lever which may be activated by a solenoid, an air cylinder or other mechanical devices.
