Mechanical Power Transmission

Brake provides high-efficiency option for rails.

Spring-engaged, air-released Profile Rail Brake is designed for max holding and/or dynamic braking. Suited for power-off safety conditions, linear motion control device integrates into profile rail system and is kept disengaged with air pressure. In disengaged mode, brake allows nearly frictionless movement of carriage until air is exhausted and internal springs apply force on brake mechanism...

Tension Brakes feature finned rotor design.
Mechanical Power Transmission

Tension Brakes feature finned rotor design.

Series SA and TA are Straight and Tapered-Bore Brakes that provide thermal dissipation and tension control for unwind brake applications. Air pressure is supplied to increase or decrease brake torque during unwind process of paper, film, foil, or fabric. High temperature O-rings and bearings allow units to run at max thermal capacity. Self-contained SA brakes are fully-assembled and mounted onto...

Torque Limiter uses proximity sensor.
Mechanical Power Transmission

Torque Limiter uses proximity sensor.

Torque Limiter disconnects main power source from down-stream components in event of torque overload or product jam. When overload occurs, proximity sensor embedded in air chamber sends signal to pneumatic, directional control valve to exhaust air from air chamber, which disconnects and protects system. Remote trip-torque setting with air regulator eliminates need for manual torque adjustments....

Straight-Bore Conveyor Clutch helps produce soft starts.
Mechanical Power Transmission

Straight-Bore Conveyor Clutch helps produce soft starts.

Air Champ® LSCC-54 employs multiple interfaces that engage under air pressure to drive sprockets, which are attached to clutch drive flange. When air pressure is not directed to clutch, springs keep clutch interface separated for complete disengagement. With through-shaft, open design, product offers 4,000 lb-ft torque at 80 psi and bore range of 0.875-1.500 in. Additional offerings include...
