Backlash-free servo couplings

13 August 2018

With its clutches, couplings and brakes, mayr power transmission offers complete solutions from a single source for the reliable protection of machine tools and machining centres. For example, a wide spectrum of backlash-free, high-performance servo couplings provides a secure connection between the shafts.

These couplings are subject to very different requirements depending on the application case. That is why mayr power transmission features steel bellows, elastomer and disk pack couplings in its range. The company has just supplemented its standard module range with numerous new hub designs and intermediate sleeves.

“With the large diversity of versions, we create a high level of flexibility for the various applications”, explains Ralf Epple, product manager at mayr power transmission. “And so we are now able to offer solutions for all drive constellations in servo technology, rapidly and easily.” The intelligent modular system also ensures high availability, short lead times for standard components and favourable prices.

No compromises on safety

mayr power transmission has developed an extensive portfolio of reliable safety brakes especially for the safeguarding of gravity-loaded axes, as suspended loads represent a substantial hazard potential in machines and systems – in particular if people are standing under them. If inadvertent lowering or crashes occur, the load must be brought to a standstill within the shortest possible time in order to protect people and material against damage.

The different brake concepts by mayr power transmission have been tailored to different machine requirements and offer the right solution for every application. The technologically-leading friction system and consistently considered safety principles stand for high performance density and above all safe and reliable brakes – as no compromises can be made on safety.
