Innovative clamping connection for torque motors

Innovative clamping connection for torque motors

The shrink discs from the RfN 4041 series made by RINGFEDER POWER TRANSMISSION have been developed specifically to firmly link engine shafts and direct drives

Thanks to their high acceleration and delay values torque motors are an efficient alternative to standard drives with a coupled transmission unit. Due to the omission of transmission units and transfer elements, maintenance work can be reduced to a minimum. Furthermore, direct drives boast a longer service life than their mechanic counterparts and bring advantages such as an extremely compact design and lower noise emission.

Now RINGFEDER POWER TRANSMISSION GMBH has developed a reliable solution to establish the contact between torque motors and engine shafts – its latest shrink disc RfN 4041. Thereby the company with a long-standing tradition in power transmission adds another trend-setting component to its extensive portfolio of diversified shrink discs.

A form-fitting screw fixing guarantees the infallible connection between the RfN 4041 shrink disc and the direct drive. In addition to the common flange diameters RINGFEDER offers its customers tailor-made solutions according to individual fitting dimensions. This allows the team to react flexibly and cost-efficiently to special needs and requirements. Depending on the respective design, torques of up to 20.000 newton metres can be transferred to shafts with diameters ranging from 20 to approximately 180 millimetres.

The clamping connection can be mounted in different variants according to the customer’s requirements and thus is universally applicable. Thanks to their versatile design and flexible installation options the components help reducing the number of different elements on stock which makes room in the warehouse.
