Brakes, clutches and web control systems

Air Champ clutches and brakes are renowned for their exceptional performance and customer support with over 1,500 sales and distributor locations around the world.

Family features - Driven Shaft Mounted, Straight Bore, Double Piston, Air Engaged, Clutch Brakes.

The recently introduced RSD200 Digital Dancer Controller closely monitors the response of the system each time the output is changed, therefore the need for expensive extra sensors to measure roll diameter, web speed, etc is overcome. PID gains of the control loop are optimised to get the fastest response and keep the output stable under all circumstances.

A new Tension Controller, the RSTC1000 - the designation coming from Rock Steady Tension Control - is innovative by virtue of its adaptive control algorithm, its easy set-up and tuning over a USB connection, and its modular design that allows users to purchase only needed components.

The RSTC1000 is a closed loop, load cell based, tension control product that uses the adaptive control algorithm to adjust internal gain values. As a result, it is a simple system exceeding the performances of more complicated systems that rely on many external sensors and signals. It is tuned only once and operators need not worry about re-tuning because the RSTC1000 provides stable control over a wide range of materials.

A full range of Horton spares is also available.
