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: UNH scientists help provide first-ever views of elusive energy explosion

Researchers at the University of New Hampshire have captured a difficult-to-view singular event involving "magnetic reconnection"--the process by which sparse particles and energy around Earth collide producing a quick but mighty explosion--in the Earth's magnetotail, the magnetic environment that trails behind the planet.

Magnetic reconnection has remained a bit of a mystery to scientists. They know it exists and have documented the effects that the energy explosions can...

Im Focus: A Chip with Blood Vessels

Biochips have been developed at TU Wien (Vienna), on which tissue can be produced and examined. This allows supplying the tissue with different substances in a very controlled way.

Cultivating human cells in the Petri dish is not a big challenge today. Producing artificial tissue, however, permeated by fine blood vessels, is a much more...

Im Focus: A Leap Into Quantum Technology

Faster and secure data communication: This is the goal of a new joint project involving physicists from the University of Würzburg. The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research funds the project with 14.8 million euro.

In our digital world data security and secure communication are becoming more and more important. Quantum communication is a promising approach to achieve...

What does it look like below the ice shelf of the calved massive iceberg A68?

On Saturday, 10 November 2018, the research icebreaker Polarstern will leave its homeport of Bremerhaven, bound for Cape Town, South Africa.

Im Focus: Penn engineers develop ultrathin, ultralight 'nanocardboard'

When choosing materials to make something, trade-offs need to be made between a host of properties, such as thickness, stiffness and weight. Depending on the application in question, finding just the right balance is the difference between success and failure

Now, a team of Penn Engineers has demonstrated a new material they call "nanocardboard," an ultrathin equivalent of corrugated paper cardboard. A square...
