Structural Design Hendrickson’s 4-tabbed design is manufactured to perform. • The symmetric clamping holds the cam tube in position to help prevent cam tube rotation, which can cause premature wear to the brake spiders and could result in an expensive replacement of the HALFTRAAX ™ axle / beam weldment. Bent washer design provides increased durability and resistance to rotation versus the flat design. • Bent to allow the washer to be common between a 15" and 16.5" diameter INTRAAX ® brake.

Mechanical Properties Hendrickson’s cam tube clamping bracket is manufactured using high- strength, low alloy, high quality steel. • On certain will-fit brands of cam tubes, testing indicates the clamping bracket mechanical properties have a lower torque causing less resistance to movement than Hendrickson’s bracket. • The clamping force will not deform the plate. Hendrickson’s cam tube bushing has internal lubricants to reduce friction and extend wear life.
