The need to save weight and space means there are always new developments, including the field of drive technology. Hollow shafts on gearboxes or motors are now often used. So far there have been little to no optimal connection options to join the hollow shaft with a normal shaft.
The drive specialists from ENEMAC, GERMANY have dealt with this topic and designed the shaft coupling type EWG.
Type EWG consists of two hub halves, connected by a 4-shaft stainless steel bellows. One of the hubs is a clamping hub, which can also be supplied with a keyway according to customer requirements. On the other side there is an expansion cone hub that can easily be inserted into the hollow shaft which ensures the space-saving desired by the designer.
The coupling series is available in seven different sizes between 2 and 700 Nm.
As every ENEMAC coupling, the EWG is free of clearance and equipped with an assembly-friendly clamping hub.
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.
