R.M. Hoffman Company designated official United States distributor for the Moenninghoff product line.

German-based Moenninghoff and R.M. Hoffman Company are introducing a new partnership that will bring Moenninghoff tooth clutch, high-precision voice coil actuator, and robust flexible coupling products to new markets.

Sunnyvale, CA June 02, 2015


German-based Moenninghoff has designated the R.M. Hoffman Company as their official United States distributor for the Moenninghoff product line.

Moenninghoff President Bodo Finger stated, "I am pleased to announce that the R.M. Hoffman Company will be representing Moenninghoff in the U.S. market. For our firm, founded in 1916, this is a strategically important step. We are convinced that R.M. Hoffman is the kind of professional distributor we need to successfully grow our business in the United States. We especially believe in these joint efforts due to the high technical competence and experience that R.M. Hoffman represents. Working together, we can link our high-precision engineering solutions with R.M. Hoffman Company's in-depth knowledge of the market."

Tom Hoffman, President and CEO of R.M. Hoffman Company, added, "We are excited about being able to bring Moenninghoff products to engineers and designers in the United States. We are particularly excited to bring Moenninghoff's high-quality tooth clutches, high-precision voice coil actuators, and robust flexible couplings to U.S. design engineers."

Moenninghoff tooth clutches provide fixed-point switching for the precise synchronization needed for medical engineering applications, packaging machines, aeronautical engineering, door-mounted operating mechanisms, printing machines, ski lifts, and textile machines.

Voice coil actuators are highly-dynamic DC linear drives with a limited stroke range which are used as extremely high-precision positioning drives, oscillating drives with adjustable frequency or in adjustable-force mode. Voice coils are particularly suited to pick-and-place tasks in assembly and packaging machines, high-speed production machines and systems for guiding and focusing laser beams.

Shaft couplings with flexible circular membranes or torsionally-flexible elastomer elements serve to compensate for misalignment in the drive train or for shock loads and critical oscillations. Flexible couplings cater to a whole range of industrial applications; from the smallest servo engineering drives to the kinds of shaft connections found in marine engineering contexts, which are subject to high loads.

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

With the SLS, SOS, and STO functionalities, the SCHUNK EGN gripping system certified in accordance with DIN EN ISO 13849 enables safe human/machine collaboration. If the production process is interrupted by an emergency shut-off, the SCHUNK EGN goes into either a safely limited speed mode or a safe stop mode depending on the activated protection zone. In contrast to other solutions available on the market, the SCHUNK safety gripping system is continuously powered even in the safe operating stop so that the gripped parts are reliably held even without mechanical maintenance of gripping force. As soon as the protection zone is released, the gripper immediately switches back to the regular operating mode without the system having to be restarted.
