Many types of machinery use needle roller clutches. They can be found in lubricator drives, speed compensation systems and other industrial and transport applications, including motorcycles and the latest generation of electric bikes. They are one-way clutches operating on a hardened shaft, which means they can transmit torque in a single direction and are compact in size. Each unit has a thin outer wall, while inside is a series of ramps with needle rollers held in place by springs. This individual springing of each needle roller ensures precise operation thanks to the rollers maintaining constant contact with the shaft.
What all this means in practice is that the bearings transmit power to the shaft in one direction only whilst allowing a free over-run in the opposite direction. This means needle roller clutches can be used for many different over-running, back-stopping and holding functions as well as enabling accurate operation of machine indexing functions.
