Overload protection for drives

Published:  08 December, 2016

With its EAS-reverse, mayr power transmission says it has developed a new, disengaging torque limiter on which all functional processes can be automated through the drive. The company says it is easy to handle, permits long run-out times and re-engages again through slow backwards rotation and a housing also makes the clutch resistant to dust or spray water – and thus ideal for use in heavy mechanical engineering.

In cases of rough operating and ambient conditions such as dust, dirt, spray water, heat or cold, the drive lines, particularly in heavy mechanical engineering, can be frequently encapsulated and therefore hard to access but these machines in particular require reliable overload protection. Therefore, mayr power transmission as a leading specialist for clutches, couplings and brakes says it has now developed with the EAS-reverse a robust, disengaging torque limiter which can withstand both high loads and which automatically re-engages – which is ideal for drives without access possibilities for re-engagement.
