Nexen’s Air Champ line of brakes and clutches is a success story that started back in 1956 when Horton Inc. designed its first air actuated clutch.   Today millions of people see, touch, or use items produced with equipment built with one or more Air Champ components.  Their versatile design and “no-excuse” reliability provides controlled starts and stops and superior torque control. 

Friction, the engineers’ nightmare, is our biggest asset when it comes to stopping and holding.  Nexen brakes and clutches are designed to handle the consequences of friction: wear and heat, in the most economical way.  They feature optimal heat transfer, long life and easy replacement of the wear items. That’s why nexen brakes stay cooler, last longer and require less maintenance.
