Mayr Antriebstechnik responds to the ongoing trend towards automation and has therefore significantly expanded the range of services offered by its clutches and brakes. New versions of the intelligent Module "Roba-brake-checker"For sensorless monitoring and supply of safety brakes open up new possibilities for brake monitoring - especially for applications in robotics and automation.

The degree of automation is increasing, the collaboration between humans and robots is becoming ever closer - robots are on the rise in all important industrial sectors. Machines and plants are becoming ever more powerful, faster and faster. The specialist from Mauerstetten in the Allgäu with its safety brakes, safety couplings and shaft couplings fulfills the increasing demands on the individual drive components.

Slim - fluid-free - monitorable

For example, the small, high-performance safety brakes of the "Roba-stop power "series Tailored to the requirements of robotics with their slim design and low weight. The fluid-free Linear brake "Roba-linearstop"In electromagnetic design was designed to protect gravity loaded vertical axes in applications where no compressors or aggregates for compressed air or oil hydraulics come into question - such as in medical technology or food and pharmaceutical industry with high standards of hygiene.

Also for these areas, the intelligent module Roba-brake-checker opens up new possibilities for brake monitoring. Because with a new version of the module, thanks to even finer evaluation, even small brake sizes can be supplied and monitored from a braking torque of 0,7 Nm. Today, the Roba-linearstop is not only the only electromagnetic bar brake on the market, but can now also be monitored in the smaller sizes with the aid of the module.

Sensorless brake monitoring

mayr40119The intelligent module Roba-brake-checker works without sensors. Instead, by analyzing the current and voltage, it detects the movement of the armature disc and knows at what stage the brake is in. In addition to switching status, temperature and wear, it also monitors the pull-cord or tension reserve, ie whether the magnet is still able to attract the armature disc. With the module, the drive specialist is the only company in the standard to offer an intelligent solution for sensorless monitoring of electromagnetic brakes.

The Roba-brake-checker can be easily and quickly integrated into machines and systems and also existing installations can be easily retrofitted. Even with small quantities, the module is a cost-effective solution. The use of standard brakes for monitoring with the Roba-brake-checker not only offers advantages in terms of cost and delivery time, but also comes into play, for example, in corrosion protection. Because the brakes can be painted easily, quickly and safely - for example, if the corrosion load is very strong and according to the standard DIN EN ISO 12944 protective measures are required, eg. B. in wind turbines or applications in the maritime sector.

Element, disconnect and shaft couplings

mayr20119In addition to safety brakes and the associated control and monitoring modules, Mayr has been developing and manufacturing proven safety couplings and shaft couplings for decades and stands for reliable complete solutions from a single source. And so the company has also significantly expanded the range of services of its safety clutches. This is how the power density of the new series "EAS-HT high-torque "element clutches improved and significantly expanded the range of possible holes.

Add to this a new series of "EAS-compact "-Freischaltkupplunginto which the company has contributed its many years of experience and the knowledge gained from numerous test series. The clutches thus meet the ever increasing demands on speed and dynamics. In addition, the "EAS-HSE "-High-element clutches For high-speed applications extended by two small sizes.

mayr30119In the field of shaft couplings, the engineers have, among other things, the torque range of the large "Roba-DS "-Lamellenpaketkupplungen extended and thus also offer reliable connections for measuring flanges for areas larger than 100.000 Nm. Last but not least, the standard modular system has been enlarged in the backlash-free, high-performance servo couplings. New, modern manufacturing processes also ensure low prices and short delivery times.

More news from Mayr power transmission

  • Hannover Messe Hall 5, Stand E04 Intelligent machine elements provide important measurement data for transparency in the drive train. This is how they support efficient and predictive machine maintenance. At the Hannover Messe 2020, Mayr Antriebstechnik presents intelligent solutions for brake monitoring as well as new approaches for networked clutches. The drive specialist invites visitors to think along the new paths.
  • User report The largest machines that are currently digging underground on the construction site of the Semmering base tunnel are two tunnel boring machines. The EAS-HT safety coupling from Mayr power transmission is used to protect these heavyweights. These couplings trigger reliably and understandably and protect the drive components sustainably. They cannot be manipulated and the factory-set torque is available again even after disengagement. Recommissioning is also quick and easy, without additional tools.
