In close collaboration with a globally leading gearbox manufacturer, RINGFEDER® has developed a locking device that is highly resistant against the strain caused by detergents, connecting the hollow shaft of the gearbox to the output shaft of a conveyor belt used in beverage production. By selecting the suitable material and by the use of special screws, this special clamping connection has been optimised to meet the extreme stability requirements and specific aseptic and hygiene requirements. On the same installation space, the shrink disc now ensures constantly higher torque transmissions than a standard design of regular steel – to the utmost satisfaction of the user.
All around the globe, numerous leading manufacturers of machines for processing foodstuff and beverages rely on the premium quality of RINGFEDER®, e.g. in liquid dosing and liquid filling systems as well as meat processing and dairy plants. Typically, the latter requires the use of stainless shaft couplings in the main drives and locking devices in the auxiliary drives. Depending on customer- or application-specific requirements, RINGFEDER® offers a comprehensive portfolio of efficient standard and special solutions for stainless components.
