Often when clamping, there is not enough space to put on a long lever, thus there has to be bought expensive special tools, often only for single cases.
A simpler and cheaper solution for such cases has come up with the German company ENEMAC.
The power clamping nut ESB, with its integrated planetary gear that can be driven by a small nut outside the housing, easily and without much effort, so that the internal thread is a bit retracted, thus the counterpart is tightened. The principle is simple, the effect is very large, because by this concept a force of 6-20 t can manually be achieved by each worker.
Screw the power clamping nut on the existing bolt, then rotate at the top mounted nut with a standard torque wrench, in individual cases even with a normal socket wrench, until the specified tightening torque and the power clamping nut securely and fast tightens your work piece or tool.
The series ESB is intended for consistently large work pieces or tools, since the depth of screw is limited by the blind hole. The model obtainable for thread of M12 to M64, also available with special threads on request.
For power clamping nuts that are exposed to extreme heat, there is a high temperature version available, which can be used for example in foundries or ceramics manufacture.
The power clamping nuts can be used at any time, whether as original part or as a retrofit item.
Founded in 1981 in Kleinwallstadt am Main, the ENEMAC GmbH
(Society for Energy and Mechanical Engineering) looks back on more than 30-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 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.
