we had a thread about this some years ago. (2001 is when I took pictures of the hub I have.) Bendix might have licensed something from Sachs, because some hubs of the Sachs design carry a Bendix logo. I have a driegang coaster brake hub that reads Bendix Torpedo. I am pretty sure it~s not "tarpedo"- the script they used makes the o look like an a.

I believe your hub is made by Sachs. It was also used on CCM bikes and labeled Duomatic. It is supposedly a better hub than the Bendix Automatic.
