Shaft Mounted - Driving Shaft Clutches/Brakes

Shaft Mounted - Driving Shaft Clutches/Brakes




A system includes an “Air Champ” Clutch and Caliper Disc brake combination consisting of a single plate friction clutch mounted on the motor shaft. A disc is mounted on a specific mounting surface on the clutch pilot. The caliper brake is fastened to a mounting plate on the machine. When engaged the clutch drives the driven shaft. The brake engages when air exits the clutch and applied to the brake to stop the driven shaft. The motor continues to run when the clutch freewheels.


There are virtually endless combinations that can be selected to provide you with the optimum performance. Here are some of the specifications, features and benefits you can use to discuss your application with one of our application engineers.
