Triplication of Torque capacity for Freewheels FXM

This innovation was only made possible by the modular and highly standardized cage freewheel design

RINGSPANN is a worldwide acting and expanding company with manufacturing plants in Germany, USA, China and South Africa. The product range includes Power Transmission Components, Clamping Fixtures and Remote Control Systems. RINGSPANN is worldwide the market leader in Industrial Freewheels.

RINGSPANN has expanded the product range of Integrated Freewheels FXM by 6 sizes. As the first manufacturer of Integrated Freewheels worldwide, RINGSPANN offers now transmissible nominal torques up to 1 230 000 Nm. With this improvement the torque capacity was triplicated compared to the previous range. This innovation was only made possible by the modular and highly standardized cage freewheel design.

Freewheels FXM are equipped with sprag lift-off X which ensures a wear-free freewheeling operation when the inner ring rotates at high speed. They are primarily used as backstops in gearboxes for conveyors (e.g. conveyor belts, bucket elevators or pumps) as a mechanical safety device.
