Eaton Airflex Expanding Clutches and Brakes are the go-to solution for braking and tensioning applications, from construction equipment and marine winches to laundry and textile machines. These elements—which come in four different series that span a range of features and sizes—use a rugged, tire-like neoprene and cord tube that expands radially, forcing a friction surface against an inner drum to create stopping torque.
