Product information

For almost 40 years, Kendrion Commercial Vehicles is the brand name for competent solutions in drive technology. From the very beginning, pneumatic clutches played a decisive role in this development.

Their continuous success is a result of their primary features: Kendrion pneumatic clutches of the LINNIG brand are of light weight, narrow build and robust. Clutch engagement can take place swiftly or over a period of several seconds with moderate progression – a flexibility that satisfied, long-term customers appreciate as much as new Kendrion customers do.

Trust the original!

Did you know that Kendrion was the first company that developed this technology for pneumatic clutches?

Thanks to the use of sintered linings, a suitable solution for the special requirements of sludge-vacuum vehicles was already on the market in the 1970's. Ever since, the pneumatic clutch was continuously further optimized in terms of the lining wear resistance and the service life of the pressure discs.

Thus, the pneumatic clutch is used in a great variety of the most different vehicles: Whenever auxiliary units require reliable engagement or disengagement, the original Kendrion pneumatic clutch of the LINNIG brand is the right choice.
