The modern, innovative mechanical engineering aims at decreasing external dimensions and higher performance potential of the building components. More and more compact drive elements with maximum power density are required. But also the safety aspect, such as Collision protection in the event of a machine crash continues to gain importance due to increasing automation and dynamization.
With the type SKB, JAKOB Antriebstechnik has a safety clutch generation for overload limitation or collision protection for indirect drives in the range, which meets these requirements. The high user benefit of the SKB series consists of the interplay of various details. These include high disengaging torques, a compact design, easy assembly through a clamping ring hub, high concentricity and bearing load and easy adjustment of the release torque.
By using high-strength tempered steel with surface hardening or plasma coating of the functional surfaces, very high release moments can be achieved. The particularly robust ball cage is very important for at high speeds, the grease-lubricated release mechanism is additionally protected by a labyrinth seal from heavy soiling or leaching. In addition, the SKB series is equipped with clamping ring hubs that allow significantly larger bore and shaft diameters than cone hubs.
Various combination options
If required, the SKB safety coupling can be expanded with metal bellows or elastomer coupling attachments. JAKOB offers a large selection of hub types and compensating elements in various sizes. An ingenious modular system enables production in cost-effective batch sizes and short delivery times.
