Stieber Clutch adds externally mounted backstops to its range.

Stieber Clutch will add to its range of load sharing and releasable backstops, at the Hannover Fair next month. Additions are self-contained designs, suitable for both high speed and low speed rotating shafts.

The backstop designs are externally mounted, self-contained on a shaft extension with a torque arm. (The original design was flange mounted onto the high speed shaft of the gear drive.) The external versions are available for both high speed (the RDBK-E, lift-off design) and low speed rotating shafts (the RDBR-E roller ramp design).

The torque capacity is up to 350,000Nm, although this will be extended up to 700,000Nm, says the company. Special solutions are available for where a higher torque capacity is required.
