Key elements for the protection of large drive trains
Even with large systems and machines, it’s often the little things that make life a lot easier and better. For example, zero-backlash R+W safety couplings provide an excellent solution for many different applications with release torques ranging from 0.1 Newton metres to as much as 20,000 kilonewton metres. Furthermore, the various series and designs allow many applications to be serviced directly from the standard product portfolio and thus delivered quickly. Customer-specific special solutions are developed with the in-house design department in close coordination with system design.
Safety couplings are a crucial factor in ensuring the smooth operation of an engine. They protect fragile machine parts against overload damage, which not only causes expensive repairs, but can also cause a complete shutdown. Hence, every millisecond counts when switching off in the event of a fault. Safety first – that’s why precision and expert knowledge are required when it comes to safety couplings.
