Constructed for easy installation - New shaft couplings for high torques of up to 110,000 Nm

12.08.2011
High screw tightening torques can prove a real challenge when installing large shaft couplings, in particular in restricted space conditions. For this reason, new ROBA®-DS disk pack coupling construction sizes have been equipped with an easy to install, positive locking connection which works at very low tightening torques.

mayr® power transmission has extended the scope of performance on the tried and tested ROBA®-DS disk pack couplings. The new construction sizes cover a nominal torque range from 22,000 to 110,000 Nm. In these sizes, the flexible disk pack is connected via positive locking and backlash-free with the mounted parts.


Far less screw tightening torque is required for the positive locking cone connection of the new ROBA®-DS disk pack couplings in comparison to frictionally locking constructions.

A new cone connection means that the screw tightening torques can be reduced to a fraction of their original value in comparison with standard frictionally locking constructions. This makes installation and de-installation substantially easier. In addition, the units for installation and de-installation of the coupling cannot be displaced.

On large couplings, the ease of installation is also an important economic aspect. Simple and quick installation can save many hours of work and unnecessary costs. Apart from that, handling large couplings is a back-breaking job. Why should things be made more difficult for fitters than necessary?
ROBA®-DS disk pack couplings are extremely robust, are not sensitive to high and low temperatures and are extremely torsionally rigid and maintenance-free. They transmit the torque backlash-free and without wear and compensate for shaft misalignment. On double-jointed couplings, the component between the two disk packs can be varied very flexibly in length for adjustment to the shaft distance. Due to their superb characteristics, disk pack couplings are frequently the preferred choice if high torques are to be transferred.

Im Focus: Quantum Particles Form Droplets

In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.

“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...

The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.

The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...
