Pawl wire for one-way clutches

steel pawl wire for one-way clutches
Bekaert pawl wire is a steel wire profile used for the production of clutch pawls used in automatic transmissions. By using finished part services we create a near net shape that only needs few post-processes. These techniques include cutting, deburring, isotropic finishing (barreling) and hardening.

High precision parts for an optimal performance

Our finishing service allows us to create a burr-free, near-shape.  The finished parts meet the high precision tolerances and dimensions of your clutch design. The parts are tailor-made to guarantee optimal performance.

Pursuing smooth transmission

The mechanical efficiency of a one-way clutch system depends a lot on the type of pawls it uses. Choosing the wrong size or dimension can have a lot of negative consequences. It can cause drag, prevent a smooth transmission and affect the life-time of the clutch.

Supports a compact design

Using Bekaert pawl wire can make your clutch system more compact. Small and light components are easier to install and reduce the weight of the clutch. The parts also need less post-processing. This reduces your production time and total cost of ownership.

Flexible delivery

Depending on your production process, we deliver our pawl wire as finished piece parts or in bars. Bekaert pawl wire is available in flexible packaging that meets your specific requirements.
