Title:
CLUTCH MECHANISM, AND PROCESSING DEVICE AND IMAGE FORMING APPARATUS INCLUDING CLUTCH MECHANISM
Document Type and Number:
Japanese Patent JP2011149548
Kind Code:
A
Abstract:

To provide a clutch mechanism having relatively higher strength even when reduced in size, and to provide a processing device and an image forming apparatus including the clutch mechanism.

The clutch mechanism includes a support plate, an input part to which driving force is input, an output part rotating upon receiving driving force, a first elastic member biasing the output part toward the support plate, a first member including a sliding arm inserted through a through-hole of the support plate and a first slide surface, and a second member formed for accommodating the first member and including a second slide surface. Insertion of the sliding arm into the through-hole inhibits rotation of the first member with respect to the support plate and allows movement of the first member in a direction approaching to the support plate and in a direction separating from the same. The output part is separated from the input part and does not output driving force when the second member is in a first rotational position, and when the second member rotates to a second rotational position, the output part outputs the driving force from the input part.
