"All-Rounder SKB" by JAKOB Antriebstechnik GmbH

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.

About JAKOB Antriebstechnik GmbH

JAKOB Antriebstechnik GmbH is an internationally leading manufacturer of servo couplings, safety couplings, and mechanical clamping elements. For more than 40 years JAKOB has been developing and producing various types of torsionally stiff metal bellows couplings and safety couplings for the servo drive industry. Throughout our history we have earned ourselves a reputation of being a reliable and competent partner in the motion and drive industry.

JAKOB is the market leader in the area of mechanical tool and component clamping with its innovative and unique clamping technology.

The JAKOB wedge clamping technology provides the highest clamping forces with low actuation torques and, at the same time, maximum operational safety. The goal of our servo and safety coupling catalog is to provide a general overview over our standard product range. Highly trained engineers and technicians at our facility in Kleinwallstadt are always ready with a solution to best meet your requirements.
