Overload clutches for gearbox test

Overload clutches for gearbox test Mayr has recently supplied a quantity of EAS-Compact overload clutches combined with ROBA-DS torsionally rigid couplings to EGM in Hannover for use on automatic gearbox test rigs. Transmitting 150 kW at 6,000 rpm, the EAS-Compact overload clutches were selected due to their high running speed capability and immediate drive disengagement facility should a failure occur in a gearbox being tested. To ensure that no further damage occurs to the both the gearbox and test equipment in the event of a gearbox failure, the drive requires immediate disengagement. The EAS-Compact overload clutches will operate virtually instantaneously on reaching the pre-set overload torque, completely disengaging the drive to ensure no further torque transmission. With the backlash free torque transmission of both the EAS-Compact Clutch and the ROBA-DS coupling, the high performance drive requirements of the test rig could be satisfied.
