Eaton’s Airflex business, manufacturer of the Original Fawick Clutch, is one of the most recognized names in the Industrial Clutch and Brake market. Eaton’s Airflex clutches embody the principals of classic design: superior performance, long life and high quality. Eaton Airflex is head quartered Cleveland Ohio, USA with Global manufacturing footprint.
The Original Fawick – Eaton Airflex Type CB is a Constricting Drum Clutch and Brake.

The Original Fawick – Eaton Airflex ‘VC’ Clutch and Brake assemblies are designed and built for severe Clutching and Braking applications on heavy duty equipments.
The ‘VC’ also has designs where coupling are incorporated to suit torsional vibration application. Coupling available are Vulkan and Geislinger.
Some Eaton Airflex and Japan Fawick version are not interchangeable.

Specifically engineered for the marine industry on diesel-driven, reverse-reduction gears, Eaton Airflex CM assemblies feature ventilated friction shoes to permit clutch slippage and protect operating life.
Eaton Airflex Expanding Clutches and Brakes are the go-to solution for braking and tensioning applications, from Construction equipment and Marine winches to Laundry, Paper 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.
When used with Air or Water Cooled drums, they are suited for medium speed cyclic applications (Tensioning) where thermal load needs to be dissipated.
Eaton and Japan Fawick version of the Type E are not interchangeable.

Type 'WCB2' - 'WCBD' - 'WCB' - Tension Drag Brake
Eaton Airflex has developed four different models of water-cooled brakes or drag brake or Tension Drag Brake in a variety of sizes.
The Types are:
WCB : Pressure Applied, Spring Released
WCBD : Pressure Applied, Spring Released, Dual Piston
WCS : Spring Applied, Pressure Release
WCSB : is a combination of WCB and WCS
Advanced design features match specific application requirements, such as high horsepower absorption, continuous slip service, thermal load dissipation, dynamic tensioning, static holding and emergency stopping.

Type 'CS' - 'CSA' - 'CTE'
Eaton Airflex CS / CSA / CTE drum style brakes are spring-applied; air released. It automatically engages in the event of air pressure or power loss. CTE develops greater torque than CS. Its design and construction are ideal for moderate speed, high torque, and cyclic applications.
The brake is bi-directional, developing approximately the same torque in either direction of drum rotation.
CS and CSA has both Eaton and Japan Fawick version.
Type 'DBA' - 'DBB' - 'DBBS' - 'DC' - 'FHB'
Eaton Airflex Air-Cooled Disc clutches and brakes are designed to excel in a wide range of applications. Featuring favourable torque-to-size ratios and low-inertia friction disc assemblies, they provide maximum clutch or braking performance in limited spaces.
Several different types of Air-Cooled Disc Clutch and Brakes are available:
DBA : Spring-applied, Pressure Released Brake, available with either solid or ventilated discs
DBB : Spring-applied, Pressure Released Brake
DBBS : Perfectly suited for non-cyclic applications Brake
DC : Pressure Applied Clutch or Brake
FHB : Designed with floating housings instead of floating rotors

- Power Press
- Power Shovels
- Bottling Equipment
- Emergency Motor Brake
Type 'DP' - 'DPA'
Engineered with opposed piston designs, Eaton Airflex Caliper brakes help balance braking performance. Their symmetrical split construction maximizes flexibility by not only accommodating discs of any thickness, but also permitting mounting from either side of the split line.

- Railroad maintenance equipment
Type ‘CBC’ – ‘FSPA’ – ‘AMCB’ – ‘DCB’ Clutch Brake Combination
Combining clutches and brakes into compact, all-in-one units allows Eaton to tailor packages to meet the requirements of many specific applications. Engineered for a range of speeds, engagements and cycle types, Eaton Airflex AMCB, CBC, FSPA and DCB clutch/brake packages each bring a unique set of features that give systems the stopping power they need to operate safely and efficiently.

Type 'TLC' Torque Limiting Clutch
Eaton Airflex Torque Limiting Couplings (TLC) are the latest solution for driveline control and protection. Designed to withstand the torque spikes found in the most demanding applications of Variable Frequency Drives, with a reputation of best in class reliability and quality, Eaton Airflex TLCs are next evolution of driveline safety.
Meet almost any flow requirement with Eaton Airflex or Japan Fawick Single, Dual, Triple or Quad passage Rotorseals. Available in a variety of sizes and designs, Rotorseals transfer pressurized fluids (Air / Water / Oil) from a stationary inlet to a rotating shaft end, providing individual control of components mounted on the same shaft, component lubrication and circulation of fluid systems.
'Quick Release Valve'
Eaton Airflex Quick Release Valves provide rapid evacuation of pressurized air from pneumatic devices. They provide an exhaust port at the device rather than at the end of a long supply line and/or control component.Exhaust is rapid and positive as soon as there is a pressure drop in the supply line.
Mufflers are available to reduce exhaust noise.
