Applications new


Wind power


Our hydraulic or mechanical shrink discs are used worldwide for the connection of the hollow shaft of the transmission with the rotor shaft.



Different versions of our flange coupling are used in bucket wheel excavators. Furthermore, our locking assemblies, shrink discs and friction springs are used in conveyor drums, stirring shaft connections and crushers.


Materials handling



In the powertrain of conveyor belts, our flange couplings are also used. Our friction springs, shrink discs and locking assemblies are used in the field of conveyor technology, especially in heavy-duty cranes, conveyor drums, elevators and storage technology.

Marine technology


Our hydraulic or mechanical shaft coupling drive rudder an shaft systems. Furthermore, our hydraulic and mechanical shrink discs are used to connect intermediate shafts and thrust bearing connections.


Drive technology



Our mechanical shrink discs are used for driving  cable winches. In addition, hydraulic shrink discs, flange couplings and locking assemblies are used for shaft connections, motor connections and brake discs.



Our connections flanges are mainly installed in hydropower plants. Our locking assemblies find their application in hydropower technology, e.g. in Francis turbines. Especially, the stainlees steel versions have a great importance in these applictaions.


Oil and gas industrie



Especially our stainlees steel products are designed for extreme conditions. Shaft couplings of TAS Schäfer GmbH are used to connect gearboxes and motors. For sealing systems on pumps, our shrinks are also used.

Wood processing


Our shrink discs from TAS Schäfer GmbH are installed in wood processing machines. A typical applictaion is the wood transport within the maschine. Depending on customer requirements, shaft couplins, locking assemblies and flange couplings are also used in this branch.


Food industrie



Stainless steel products are standard in the Food industrie. For this reason, our stainlees steel shrink discs or locking assemblies are essential for the high hygienic standatds of this industrie. They provide a reliable foundation for all applictaions in the area. Typical applications are stirring systems, ice machines and filling machines.

Paper industrie


Preferably, our hydraulic shrink discs are used in this insutrie, this allows faster  replacement of rolls. Furthermore, mechanical shrink discs and locking assemblies are installed in rollers and winding machines.


Packaging machines



Our locking assemblies are woldwide installed in different packaging machines. For example, they are used to mounting pullys and also for the transport of goods in the machines. Furthermore, shrink discs and shaft couplings are also used in this industrie.

Gearbox test benches


Our hydraulic shrink discs, especially for gearbox test benches, are designed and manufactured to customer specifications. Through our years of know-how, we are world market leaders in this industrie and equip test benches worldwide with our products.
