The Polyclutch® Slip-Aire clutch is an air pressure-actuated version of the mechanical Slipper clutch. It has the same long-life friction plates, ensuring constant torque or tension. With air actuation it can be used to engage/disengage, to vary the torque during operation, or to adjust the torque remotely at any time. Ideal for servo mechanisms, they transmit higher torque levels than comparably sized mechanical slip clutches. Slip-Aire slip clutches are less expensive to purchase and operate than electrically actuated versions. Sealed ball bearings are available on selected models.
Can be adjusted remotely while the machine is in operation to accomplish quick, repeatable, accurate setup
