For the development of an existing machine, SCAIME helped the customer choose a torquemeter to measure the torque transmitted by a motor to a pulley. The pulley drives a load via a belt.
The particularity of this project was the limited possibility of modifying the customer's mechanics. We therefore opted for easy integration of our sensor.
In a conventional installation, belt drive results in a high radial load on the torquemeter, which is not designed to accept such a load from the outset.
In general, to prevent this radial force being transmitted to the sensor, a bearing is recommended to absorb it (motor, coupling, torquemeter, coupling, bearing and pulley).

A special MR12 torquemeter for pulleys has been proposed.
The pulley is attached to the outer diameter of the torquemeter, and the motor shaft is inserted into the inner diameter of the torquemeter.
This torquemeter integrates ideally with the customer's machine, while saving space and optimizing the solution compared with a standard torquemeter.
