The drive specialist ENEMAC from Kleinwallstadt stands for avoiding expensive machine downtimes with reliability and quality.
The short torque limiter type ECH for chain drives from ENEMAC is equipped with an integrated chain wheel. This makes it as narrow as a slipping clutch, but with its high repeatability and the precisely adjustable disengagement torque also offers the advantages of a ball detent clutch.
In case of an overload, the torque limiter disengages in a few seconds and the transmission of the torque stops. To activate the machine's emergency stop, the switching movement of the disc spring has to be sensed by a proximity switch. When the engine starts slowly, the limiter engages automatically after one revolution.
The safety coupling is available in 11 sizes for disengagement torques between 2 and 900 Nm; the sprocket size can be determined by the customer.
The ECH type is preferred in general mechanical engineering, wherever chain drives are used as drive elements.
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.
