DC Clutches and Brakes

The Eaton Airflex type DC element is available from Clutch Engineering for use with power presses, tension brakes, and other applications. These DC clutches and brakes are smaller than most other type clutches with comparable torque ratings. These products have a low inertia and they are pressure actuated and spring released. External springs ensure positive disengagement for these units. When in use, pressurizing the cylinder causes the piston to clamp the friction disc assemblies between clamping plates.

Torque range: 10,500 to 2,240,000 lb-in (1,190 to 252,900 Nm)
Typical applications: Power presses, tension brakes, unwind stands
