In addition, the installation spaces available are becoming increasingly small due to the increasingly compact constructions. Mayr power transmission has therefore developed the new torque limiting clutch EAS-HSC (High-Speed-Compact) for speeds of up to 12,000 rpm.
EAS-HSC clutches transmit the torque backlash-free during operation, and allow the drive components to slow down freely on overload.
In test stand technology, torque limiting clutches must be capable of transmitting the torque backlash-free and with torsional rigidity at extremely high speeds. The only devices suitable for this purpose are residual torque-free or disengaging torque limiting clutches, which allow the stored rotational energy in coupled masses to slow down freely.
Torque limiting clutches in high-speed applications must have a high balance quality in every individual component, so that optimum running smoothness of the drive train is guaranteed in combination with the components. Therefore, the optimisation of the mass unbalance was one of the highest priorities in the technical specifications.
In addition to their extremely compact construction, a high performance density reduces the rotating masses, which has a positive effect on running smoothness and machine dynamics. The clutch is balanced in completely assembled condition to a balance quality of G 2.5 at a reference speed of 3000 rpm.
If the torque in the drive line exceeds the limit value set on the EAS-HSC, the clutch disengages via a unique disengagement mechanism. This holds it securely in disengaged position. The torque drops immediately and an installed limit switch detects the disengagement movement and switches off the drive.
The limit switch signal can also be used for further control functions. The clutch separates the input and output completely and remains in this condition until it is re-engaged by hand or using a device.
In normal operation, the torque on the EAS-HSC is transmitted using balls which engage simultaneously with the hub and drive flange grooves. Cup springs clamp the balls via a ring. The level of the spring force is proportional to the transmittable torque. This principle also remains backlash-free when the grooves wear down, as the cup springs have a falling characteristic curve. Therefore, the torque is transmitted with torsional rigidity up to the pre-set trigger value. In case of overload, the pre-tension force of the spring and the clutch trigger highly accurately.
The clutches transmit the torque backlash-free during operation, and ensure that the drive components slow down freely on overload. During the overtravel time, no engagement impacts occur which might have a negative effect on the drive line. Re-engagement takes place “synchronously” only at the disengagement position. This is frequently required if the input and output always have to have the same angular position to each other.
With its five construction sizes, the EAS-HSC provides nominal torques from 5 to 1000 Nm. Depending on the size, speeds from 6000 to 12,000 rpm are permitted.Contact:

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...
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,...

The efficiency of power electronic systems is not solely dependent on electrical efficiency but also on weight, for example, in mobile systems. When the weight of relevant components and devices in airplanes, for instance, is reduced, fuel savings can be achieved and correspondingly greenhouse gas emissions decreased. New materials and components based on gallium nitride (GaN) can help to reduce weight and increase the efficiency. With these new materials, power electronic switches can be operated at higher switching frequency, resulting in higher power density and lower material costs.
Researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE together with partners have investigated how these materials can be used to make power...
