Our uncompromising commitment to quality, together with close co-operation with our Customers, is the secret of our success. Qualified engineers with the most modern resources in the design and development departments offer the most effective solutions to our Customers.

Leading Technology

mayr® Power Transmission currently have round 500 employees and produce a wide product range including mechanical and electric power transmission products. The parent company in Mauerstetten is located between Munich and Lake Constance.

Attractive, branch-optimised solutions which are always developed under the provision of cost reduction of the complete drive concept and increased productivity enabled mayr® to become technological leader in backlash-free servo clutches and safety brakes and world-wide market leader for mechanical torque limiters. The enterprise offers a wide range of products, including high-quality drive and control components and complete drive solutions, proven in numerous applications of the leading machine manufacturers.

The product range includes

– backlash-free shaft couplings
– torque limiting clutches
– electromagnetic clutches and brakes
– safety brakes
– DC-servo-drives

Application examples

Safety brakes in wind turbines

Failure of the drives or the safety brakes in electrical pitch controls on wind turbines can have fatal consequences. If the entire system fails, this leads in a worst case scenario to complete destruction of the system. Decades of experience, precise knowledge of the braking torque tolerances, extremely conscientious dimensioning and high product quality guarantee that mayr® power transmission safety brakes installed in wind turbine pitch drives work reliably and without requiring maintenance for the entire system lifetime.

Limiting high torques reliably using disengaging torque limiting clutches

In heavy engineering and on drives with high torques, high speeds and large mass moments of inertia, disengaging torque limiting clutches ensure that the input and output are completely separated on collision or after a malfunction, and that the stored rotational energy can slow down freely. In contrast to shear pins and hydraulic clamping sets, such clutches are non-destructive, are much more accurate and are ready for operation again far more quickly. They therefore provide interesting, economically-viable and future-orientated solutions.
