The EWR half-shell version made of stainless steel is new in the range of couplings specialist Enemac from Kleinwallstadt. The use of A4 or A2 stainless steels makes it suitable for use in demanding environments and in sterile or even acidic applications, as well as in the food and medical sectors.
It is particularly suitable for use in systems that are difficult to access, where space is very limited and the drive and output units are rigid or cannot be moved in axial direction.
With type EWR, the two lower halves of the hub can be removed and the coupling placed radially on the shaft ends. Afterwards the loose hub halves are placed on the opposite side of the shaft and connected using stainless steel clamping screws.
Disassembly is also possible with little effort and requires no further aids such as pullers or other tools. The hygienic design metal bellows coupling is available in 7 sizes for nominal torques of 10 Nm up to 1,200 Nm and for shaft diameters from 7 to 85 mm.
Founded in 1981 in Kleinwallstadt am Main, the ENEMAC GmbH
(Society for Energy and Mechanical Engineering) looks back on almost 40-year history. Steady progress and recent developments have extended and modified the product range of ENEMAC over the decades.
In the early years focusing on the topic of machine safety for feed drives. With the safety clutch type ECT-R ENEMAC entered the market in the machine tool industry. Further series followed to service the needs of this market segment.
During the 1990s, the focus shifted towards food and packaging industry. ENEMAC specialized on rust-free safety couplings made of stainless steel to accomodate the high hygiene and production requirements in this area. In parallel, lower cost versions of safety couplings, the so-called overload clutches have been developed. To complete the product range, shaft couplings in different variants and versions have been integrated into the offer.
In recent years, the company ventured a step above the usual "clutch plate" addition in the direction of clamping technology. Mechanical clamping screws and clamping nuts and hydromechanical spring clamping cylinders provide an alternative to simple workholding equipment such as clamps or clamping claws as well as to semi or fully automatic clamping devices.
ENEMAC clamping technology is very versatile. Whether for tool or workpiece clamping, in materials handling, bending and welding engineering - either as original equipment or aftermarket item.
What value this new product line in the company's development will take, the future will tell. The company will face the new challenges of the market and be constantly striving to meet customer needs individually and in highest quality.
