Effectiveness, safety, customization, profitability – the diverse and complex requirements in drive and damping technology are constantly increasing and changing. How do development engineers approach them? What specific solutions do they create for different industrial and technological sectors? How are pioneering innovations successfully achieved that provide real added value? We discuss this and much more in our The Engineer's Blog.
Selecting the correct locking assembly can prevent the damage depicted above (from left to right): burned clamping set, deformed end disc, deformed locking assembly.
Ignoring induced forces or the faulty design of belt conveyor pulleys can cause high repair costs. Resulting damage may show itself in shaft breakage, axial movement or plastic deformation of the pulley bottom. Apart from that, downtime losses accrue which can quickly amount to several millions.

Apart from transmitting the rotor torque, locking assemblies installed in crushers are subjected to further loads such as bending moments and radial impacts. The factors which have to be considered for these applications are briefly described in this article. Please also watch the video and learn how modern impact crushers work.
In this article we take a brief look at a locking assembly solution of RINGFEDER POWER TRANSMISSION which was developed for a cement plant after the mill operator had experienced repeated failures of its equipment.
