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: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".

Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
