Abssac has supplied a stainless steel ETP EXPRESS R hydraulic shaft-hub connection for an application in food packaging machinery.
A customer recently approached Abssac requiring a shaft-hub connection for quickly adjusting the width of a conveyor on which packaged ready meals were moved towards the final packaging area. Abssac supplied a stainless steel food-compatible hydraulic clamping bush. In this environment, downtime costs money, so the stainless steel ETP EXPRESS R hydraulic shaft-hub connection was very attractive because it enables the pulley belt wheels to be positioned very easily by turning just one space-saving screw; adjustment takes just a few seconds.
ETP EXPRESS R shaft-hub connections have no pockets or crevices in which food can get lodged. Moreover, they can be removed and refitted in seconds, as opposed to the minutes required with traditional mechanical locking bushes. The keyless friction gripping devices are also suitable for use in areas where regular washdowns are necessary.
