Some torque limiting clutches can release hundreds of revolutions after an overload while others respond almost instantly. A static analysis and kinematic explanation leads to an understanding of the delayed-release phenomenon and it’s relation to clutch design. Laboratory measurements are compared to theoretical predictions for “fast-blow” and “slow-blow” clutch designs.
