Limiting high torques reliably

12.08.2011
New torque limiting clutch for heavy engineering

In addition to numerous other innovations, mayr® power transmission is to present a large disengaging torque limiting clutch for torques of up to 280,000 Nm at the Hannover Trade Fair. This large clutch for heavy engineering is combined with curved tooth couplings for the connection of two shafts.


Disengaging EAS®-element clutches for heavy engineering disengage the input and output on overload. The energy from the rotating masses stored in the system can slow down freely.

As international market leaders, mayr® power transmission has provided the widest product range of load holding, load disconnecting, torque and force limiting, frictionally locking, positive locking, magnetic, regulatable and switchable torque limiting clutches for decades.

In spite of this wide range, the company have noticed an increasing demand for new torque limiting clutches with extremely high torques and for application-optimised solutions. For this reason, the performance range of the disengaging EAS®-element clutches has been extended at the time of the Hannover Trade Fair in 2011. The latest design with curved tooth couplings for the connection of two shafts is designed for torques of up to 280,000 Nm.

EAS®-element clutches transfer the torque using positive locking during normal operation. On overload, they separate the input and output nearly residual torque-free with a high switch-off and repeat accuracy. The kinetic energy from the rotating masses stored in the system can slow down freely. Such disengaging clutches do not automatically re-engage. They remain disengaged until they are re-engaged either manually or via mechanical or hydraulic devices.

For 30 years, disengaging EAS®-element clutches have been protecting systems and drives in heavy engineering against expensive overload damage. Our decades of experience and the collective, comprehensive know-how make mayr® power transmission your ideal partner for mechanical overload protection in drives with extremely high torques, high speeds and large mass moments of inertia.

Im Focus: Strathclyde-led research develops world's highest gain high-power laser amplifier

The world's highest gain high power laser amplifier - by many orders of magnitude - has been developed in research led at the University of Strathclyde.

The researchers demonstrated the feasibility of using plasma to amplify short laser pulses of picojoule-level energy up to 100 millijoules, which is a 'gain'...

Im Focus: Can the immune system be boosted against Staphylococcus aureus by delivery of messenger RNA?

Staphylococcus aureus is a feared pathogen (MRSA, multi-resistant S. aureus) due to frequent resistances against many antibiotics, especially in hospital infections. Researchers at the Paul-Ehrlich-Institut have identified immunological processes that prevent a successful immune response directed against the pathogenic agent. The delivery of bacterial proteins with RNA adjuvant or messenger RNA (mRNA) into immune cells allows the re-direction of the immune response towards an active defense against S. aureus. This could be of significant importance for the development of an effective vaccine. PLOS Pathogens has published these research results online on 25 May 2017.

Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) is a bacterium that colonizes by far more than half of the skin and the mucosa of adults, usually without causing infections....

Im Focus: A quantum walk of photons

Physicists from the University of Würzburg are capable of generating identical looking single light particles at the push of a button. Two new studies now demonstrate the potential this method holds.

The quantum computer has fuelled the imagination of scientists for decades: It is based on fundamentally different phenomena than a conventional computer....

Im Focus: Turmoil in sluggish electrons’ existence

An international team of physicists has monitored the scattering behaviour of electrons in a non-conducting material in real-time. Their insights could be beneficial for radiotherapy.

We can refer to electrons in non-conducting materials as ‘sluggish’. Typically, they remain fixed in a location, deep inside an atomic composite. It is hence...

Im Focus: Wafer-thin Magnetic Materials Developed for Future Quantum Technologies

Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.

Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...
