High-speed torque limiting clutches for test stands with extremely high torques

12.08.2013
Mayr power transmission is now to complete its torque limiting clutches for high-speed applications through a large series with high torques.

Besides the "EAS-HSC", the "EAS-HSE" (High-Speed Elements) now transmits significantly higher speeds – as a special version, even up to 20,000 rpm. This clutch with a disengaging mechanism is therefore suitable for operation in all test stands which require large clutches.


The EAS-HSE series is based on the tried and tested design principles of the "EAS-Elements".

The EAS-HSE series is based the design principles of the "EAS-Elements", which have proven their worth over decades, and has been designed for the extreme demands set by test stand technology in high torque ranges. For large clutches with high torques, the clutch specialist applies several overload elements across as large a diameter as possible.

As a result, significantly higher torques are realisable than with a central disengaging mechanism. In the standard version, speed values of up to 12,000 rpm are permitted; in a special version even up to 20,000 rpm.

The separation of input and output occurs almost residual torque-free with high switch-off and repetitive accuracies. Due to the axial stroke of the bolt or ball carrier, the control segments move radially outwards, thereby disconnecting the components axially. The elements do not re-engage automatically, but instead remain separated until they are re-engaged manually, or using a device. The position for synchronous re-engagement to maintain balance quality is clearly marked on the clutch.

As a result, the EAS-HSE provides a reliable and precise torque limitation, and, thanks to the complete separation of the drive line, does not cause engagement impacts. The basic prerequisite for use of a torque limiting clutch in high-speed applications is, among other things, the high balance quality of every individual component in order to achieve optimum running smoothness of the drive line in combination with the other components. The clutches have an extremely compact design and permit a low-backlash high performance density. Furthermore, the reduction of the rotating masses has a positive effect on the running smoothness and the machine dynamics.

Three sizes for torques from 100 to 8400 Nm have been realised in the EAS-HSE series up until now. Depending on their size, they are permitted for speedvalues from 6000 to 12,000 rpm. Four further sizes are planned. The complete series will in future cover torques of up to 25,000 Nm and speeds of up to 16.000 rpm. Due to their characteristics, the new torque limiting clutches of the EAS-HSE series are not only suitable for test stands, but also for all other high-speed drive axes.

Im Focus: Fizzy soda water could be key to clean manufacture of flat wonder material: Graphene

Whether you call it effervescent, fizzy, or sparkling, carbonated water is making a comeback as a beverage. Aside from quenching thirst, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have discovered a new use for these "bubbly" concoctions that will have major impact on the manufacturer of the world's thinnest, flattest, and one most useful materials -- graphene.

As graphene's popularity grows as an advanced "wonder" material, the speed and quality at which it can be manufactured will be paramount. With that in mind,...

Im Focus: Exotic quantum states made from light: Physicists create optical “wells” for a super-photon

Physicists at the University of Bonn have managed to create optical hollows and more complex patterns into which the light of a Bose-Einstein condensate flows. The creation of such highly low-loss structures for light is a prerequisite for complex light circuits, such as for quantum information processing for a new generation of computers. The researchers are now presenting their results in the journal Nature Photonics.

Light particles (photons) occur as tiny, indivisible portions. Many thousands of these light portions can be merged to form a single super-photon if they are...

Im Focus: Circular RNA linked to brain function

For the first time, scientists have shown that circular RNA is linked to brain function. When a RNA molecule called Cdr1as was deleted from the genome of mice, the animals had problems filtering out unnecessary information – like patients suffering from neuropsychiatric disorders.

While hundreds of circular RNAs (circRNAs) are abundant in mammalian brains, one big question has remained unanswered: What are they actually good for? In the...

Im Focus: RAVAN CubeSat measures Earth's outgoing energy

An experimental small satellite has successfully collected and delivered data on a key measurement for predicting changes in Earth's climate.

The Radiometer Assessment using Vertically Aligned Nanotubes (RAVAN) CubeSat was launched into low-Earth orbit on Nov. 11, 2016, in order to test new...

Im Focus: Scientists shine new light on the “other high temperature superconductor”

A study led by scientists of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg presents evidence of the coexistence of superconductivity and “charge-density-waves” in compounds of the poorly-studied family of bismuthates. This observation opens up new perspectives for a deeper understanding of the phenomenon of high-temperature superconductivity, a topic which is at the core of condensed matter research since more than 30 years. The paper by Nicoletti et al has been published in the PNAS.

Since the beginning of the 20th century, superconductivity had been observed in some metals at temperatures only a few degrees above the absolute zero (minus...
