A direct safety coupling for torques starting 0.5 Nm is provided by the German company ENEMAC with Type ECKB. It is a combination of torque limiter with conical hub, to prevent collisions; and a metal bellows coupling with clamping hub. The bellows of the coupling allow axial, angular and lateral misalignment of the shafts.
The Type ECKB can handle axial displacements of 0.3 to 1 mm, angular displacements of up to 1 °C, and lateral offsets between 0.1 mm and 0.3 mm. The short coupling is available for nominal torques between
0.5 Nm and 2000 Nm, in 16 different sizes. The clamping hub can accommodate diameters between 3 mm and 85 mm, the conical hub allows diameters of 4 mm to 65 mm.
Our couplings are wear and maintenance free. The side-mounted, installation-friendly clamping hub connects shaft and coupling backlash-free and force-fitting, but can also be equipped on customer's preference with a keyway.
On request also special variants, such as corrosion protected versions are possible.
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.
