ULTRA.PLUS System: Only the very best of everything

Kugelaustauschservice

With the ULTRA.PLUS System, Walterscheid redefines driveshaft quality and performance. The individual components, all of which were optimised for maximum functionality, add up to be the best Walterscheid driveshaft ever: highest efficiency, highest service life and unbeatable user-friendliness.


New standards in terms of quality and performance of drive shafts - the Walterscheid ULTRA.PLUS System

  • New universal joint
  • New drive shaft guard design
  • New premium guard cone
  • New wide-angle technology
  • New clutch technology
  • Innovative lubrication system for profile tubes

In agricultural operations, transmission of power via drive shafts continues to be one of the most important and efficient drive concepts. Walterscheid produced its first agricultural drive shaft at the beginning of the 1950s, and thanks to innovative developments, quickly achieved a global reputation as a leading supplier and easy recognition of its yellow coloured driveshafts. Over 65 years later, GKN Walterscheid engineers now fundamentally advanced the “yellow drive shaft”, thus achieving new levels of performance, safety and functionality. For this purpose, all major functional areas and components of the drive shaft were completely re-engineered. This process resulted in the new ULTRA.PLUS system that can be utilised in almost all Walterscheid driveshaft products.


“More than 100 newly developed or re-engineered components will be installed in our Walterscheid driveshafts in the future. The sum of numerous detailed developments provides for a markedly improved overall performance”, reports Wolfgang Adamek, responsible Head of Construction and Development for the new ULTRA.PLUS system. “In addition, we can offer an optimally customised drive shaft for each and every application – and this is not only true with regard to the growing requirements of agricultural equipment manufacturers. With the ULTRA.PLUS system, also the end customer will find the drive shaft which is optimally adapted to his operation”, says Adamek. The ULTRA.PLUS system will be stepwise introduced for all series starting in mid-October 2017.


Innovative universal joints

The new universal joints are one example of technological enhancements which will be applied in Walterscheid driveshafts in the future. The combination of the proven turquoise multi-lip seal, precision manufacturing and innovative lubricants ensure marked progress. The ULTRA.PLUS system now offers a doubling of the joint’s service life, and a clear increase in operating reliability, whilst maintenance efforts and wear are considerably reduced. In addition, environmental friendliness is improved, not in the least due to the markedly reduced loss of lubricant. Thanks to the proven cap bottom lubrication, greasing has also become significantly easier.



New drive shaft guard concept

For the new profiled guard tube with the “ST” labelling, both protective halves are connected in such a way as to make one holding chain obsolete. In combination with complete protection, no holding chain is required. Easy handling, reduced wear, stability, and compatibility with today’s SD/SC safety guards provide convincing arguments for the new guard concept. This also includes the new Walterscheid Premium Guard Cones which considerably simplify mounting/dismounting and maintenance of drive shafts and clutches. The implement guard cones are manufactured from high-quality materials, can be opened and removed in a few quick steps and offer an automatic 360° single click locking. These Premium Guard Cones have low requirements with regards to available space and feature a universal hole pattern for almost all applications.



New wide-angle technology

The new compact 50° wide-angle joint P450 is the ideal supplement to the proven Walterscheid wide angle joints. It was specifically designed for wide constant-angle applications, and can be used for all applications with a 50-degree maximum shaft angle. With its innovative centring system, the P450 joint is well suited for high speeds, rotates smoothly and is zero-maintenance thanks to the fully sealed centring unit. it can be combined with standard joints, wide-angle joints as well as overload and overrunning clutches to cover a wide range of applications.



New clutch technology

With the newly developed friction clutches K90TF and K90/4TF, local agricultural machinery businesses can now also take care of maintaining and adjusting the clutches, thus extending the service life of remaining friction linings. In addition to secure venting and easy maintenance thanks to the simple exchange of linings, the characteristics of the new diaphragm springs of these clutches automatically compensate for wear in the lining, thus ensuring an excellent constancy of torque and high operating reliability. Thanks to an optimised bearing concept, the new cam-type cut-out clutch K68/EK68 achieves significantly quieter running. The lubricant volume has been increased and the seal improved. As a consequence, this model’s strength are a markedly reduced maintenance effort, reduced risk of dirt accumulation, and lower grease losses as well as a significant increase of service life and operating reliability.

Innovative lubrication system for profile tubes

As an option, the proven Walterscheid profile tubes can be equipped with the new lubrication system for profile tubes with immediate effect. Good accessibility of the grease nipple, homogeneous grease distribution via only one grease nipple as well as secure lubrication regardless of length and position do not only ensure a longer service life and higher performance but also provide for easier handling




 

26.05.2018 - NOUVEAUTE : La „rotule noire“ de GKN Walterscheid

NOUVEAUTE : La „rotule noire“ de GKN Walterscheid


Pour les domaines d’application particulièrement éprouvants, comme par exemple le travail du sol, GKN Walterscheid propose maintenant une nouvelle rotule haute performance. Elle se caractérise par des exigences extrêmement hautes imposées aux matériaux et au processus de fabrication et elle assure par conséquent un maximum de sécurité et une durée de vie plus longue dans la pratique courante – même dans des conditions opérationnelles particulièrement difficiles. Pour la production de la nouvelle rotule appelée „rotule noire » de GKN Walterscheid, on n’utilise que des matériaux de qualité particulièrement haute. Pour ce faire, on utilise comme matière de base un acier allié au chrome pour paliers à rouleaux. Cet acier est amélioré par un traitement thermique parfaitement adapté et protégé contre la rouille par un vernissage cathodique par immersion. Au cours de ce procédé de fabrication, le revêtement de haute qualité prend une couleur typiquement noire. Cette rotule est disponible dès à présent chez votre revendeur GKN Walterscheid. Vous trouverez ici des informations techniques concernant la „rotule noire“.
