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: Significantly more productivity in USP lasers

In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.

Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...

Im Focus: Shape matters when light meets atom

Mapping the interaction of a single atom with a single photon may inform design of quantum devices

Have you ever wondered how you see the world? Vision is about photons of light, which are packets of energy, interacting with the atoms or molecules in what...

Im Focus: Novel silicon etching technique crafts 3-D gradient refractive index micro-optics

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.

Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...

Im Focus: Quantum Particles Form Droplets

In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.

“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...

Im Focus: MADMAX: Max Planck Institute for Physics takes up axion research

The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.

The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...
