Pa.go System
Hydraulically actuated, wet-running clutch-brake system with mechatronic closed-loop control.

Pa.go enables the precise closed-loop control of clutch-brake units in large presses. While such control brings considerable benefits during normal operations, it also helps to counter the impact of changes in operating conditions like temperature, wear, oil leakage etc.
The speed-regulated servo pump produces the required operating pressure dynamically, allowing it to control acceleration and braking of the clutch-brake unit in a precise manner.
The press safety valve is monitored and actuated by the press’s safety controls.
Closed-loop control
The entire clutch and braking process is controlled by Pa.go Control, which matches the requested operating status with the current system pressure and Pa.go’s speed, then generates a target torque for the motor. The relevant parameters are transmitted to the servo controller via EtherCAT, which provides the electricity needed for the motor.
The status variables of the regulation can be used to calculate plate wear, among other things. The wear variables can be called up on the display and are used for preventative maintenance. In addition, Pa.go Control records key data such as maximum pressure, acceleration time, braking time, reaction time, and clutch-brake unit switch time for each press stroke. The pressure and torque is recorded every set number of strokes in an oscilloscope graph so that the switches can be analyzed retrospectively.
Process reliability
A log file records any interruptions that occur as well as the total number of switches, allowing for preventive measures to increase the uptime of the press.
Productivity increase and equipment preservation
The innovative pressure regulation makes it possible to use the clutch and brakes quickly and smoothly. Thus, productivity is increased and the machinery is better preserved.
  • Preventive maintenance
  • Wear measurement
  • Electronic slip control
  • Error diagnosis
  • Interface Diagnosis of CBU data
  • Closed-loop control of Pa.go
  • Convenient touch display
  • SD card slot for data recording
  • Various sensor and bus interfaces
Increasing machine readiness
Preventative maintenance enabled by qualitative wear recognition increases machine readiness on a long-term basis. The availability of the machine is thereby ensured, along with the overload safeguard, by means of calculations on the basis of the current heat load. Pa.go
Conserving resources
The speed-controlled servo pump works efficiently and conserves resources.
Applications: Automotive presses


Self-sufficient hydraulically actuated clutch system

With Prop.act – our new shifting clutch system – we have taken another step toward the future. The hydraulically actuated, wet-running clutch unit with shaft end connections on both sides, integrated oil supply and hydraulic control can be installed on a ship as a ready-to-use compact unit. A stand-by pump is additionally installed, that keeps the system self-contained at any time.
Essential Advantages:

Prop.act is a sophisticated end-to-end system, which, for example, allows complete installation of the rudder propellers in the ship.
The clutch system is fixed to the ships bottom as a stand-alone solution.

The wet-running of the clutch ensures wear-free operation (within defined technical limits).

Integrated oil supply
The supply of pressure oil and cooling oil is integrated with a built-in oil tank. As a result, no separate pumps, valves and heat exchangers are required, which makes additionally piping and expensive installation superfluous. Cabling due to shipping standard.

Defined drive interfaces enable simple assembly of the driveshaft through adjusted connection dimensions.

The operation of Prop.act generates little noise.

Integrated sensors
Built-in sensors produce all necessary signals for operation and monitoring. This eliminates the need to install additional sensors and makes overall installation much easier.
