Title: DUAL-ROTOR ASSEMBLY FOR TRANSMITTING FORCE TO A SHAFT
Abstract:
A dual-rotor force transmitting assembly (10) includes a powerhead assembly (28) having a spring housing (36), a plurality of first spring sets (42a) that generate a braking force for a first rotor (14a) and a plurality of second spring sets (42b) that generate a braking force for a second rotor (14b). Using separate spring sets for each rotor ensures application of uniform and equal pressure on both rotors even if there is uneven friction surface wear.
