With the Xtend clutch a new concept for automatic wear compensation, which is suitable for push- and pull-type clutches of all sizes, has been developed. A very high level of accuracy of the adjusting process could be achieved under all operating conditions by the direct mechanical coupling to the wear of the clutch facings. It can be used without any changes to existing interfaces and possesses the same robustness and is as easy to handle as any conventional clutch.
