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

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: Etching Microstructures with Lasers

Ultrafast lasers have introduced new possibilities in engraving ultrafine structures, and scientists are now also investigating how to use them to etch microstructures into thin glass. There are possible applications in analytics (lab on a chip) and especially in electronics and the consumer sector, where great interest has been shown.

This new method was born of a surprising phenomenon: irradiating glass in a particular way with an ultrafast laser has the effect of making the glass up to a...
