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: Giant Magnetic Fields in the Universe

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.

The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.

Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...

Im Focus: Polymer-coated silicon nanosheets as alternative to graphene: A perfect team for nanoelectronics

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.

Im Focus: Researchers Imitate Molecular Crowding in Cells

Enzymes behave differently in a test tube compared with the molecular scrum of a living cell. Chemists from the University of Basel have now been able to simulate these confined natural conditions in artificial vesicles for the first time. As reported in the academic journal Small, the results are offering better insight into the development of nanoreactors and artificial organelles.
