Brake with Air Released CouplingAn air engaged friction brake and air released coupling are combined in this custom designed assembly.  The brake stops and holds a roll of material during a converting process.  When the process is complete, the user applies air to the coupling which then slides open.  The roll, joined to the coupling with a tang-end shaft, can then be quickly removed. 

The air released coupling is also available as a stand-alone item.  Contact our engineering department for more information.  US Toll free: 866-291-0849, International: +1 859-291-0849 or Email:
