TLB System

The Twiflex Turning, Locking, and Braking System (TLB) is offered by Clutch Engineering and it is constructed with an innovative design that reduces costs. These products reduce the space required for use, and minimize installation and maintenance time, which all supports your bottom line. All three of these important functions, including turning, locking, and breaking, are combined into a single highly-functional system. The useful TLB system is fully designed and built in-house by Twiflex. Additional optional local controls are available.

Turning torques up to 334,850 lb-ft (454,000 Nm)
Braking and locking torques up to 635,780 lb-ft (862,000 Nm)
Typical application: Marine propulsion
