What have ski jumping
and a centrifugal clutch have in common?
Are you curious? Then just enjoy this short introduction.
The most interesting thing about my job at Amsbeck is to meet different people from different cultures and of course to see in which our products are used. I like technical tasks and presenting our customers with a solution that fits their needs.
One exciting application is the Ice Cutter from our long-standing partner Topspeed®.
What is the Ice Cutter used for?
The steel blade shape of the TopSpeed® Ice Cutter carves a perfect shape of the ice within the inlet track. The shape of the blade can be tailored to each customer's needs. The quality of the Ice Cutter and the type of ice cut have a direct impact on the skier's perception of the conditions in the glide channels of the inrun track. Only cleanly cut ice can ensure that athletes can achieve high take-off speeds.
Can you imagine what the centrifugal clutch does in this application?

But back to the main question in the headline. What do ski jumping and a centrifugal clutch have to do with each other?
I'll keep it short... Both need high speed to perform well!
With kind regards
Many thanks for the cooperation, information and joint contribution to our partner
