SensiFlex clutches and brakes are designed for one purpose – tension control. They are not standard clutches and brakes that have been repurposed for tension control by substituting a low coefficient friction pad. SensiFlex clutches and brakes engage at low pressures and are capable of a broad range of torque output. They supply the processing flexibility demanded from today’s narrow web converting machinery without sticking, pulsing or cogging.


SensiFlex clutches and brakes are specifically designed for optimal tension control. They require low pressure to engage and are sensitive to slight changes in air pressure, providing smooth control of torque output. Several different configurations allow for a variety of mounting arrangements. SensiFlex products are designed for efficient heat dissipation and require little maintenance.


Torque range: 36 to 2356 lb-in (4 to 266 Nm)

Typical applications: Printing and converting equipment, wire drawing, laminating machines
