FLUID POWER: Ideal coupling selection takes into account factors such as torque profiles, temperature, inertia mismatch and rotational speed to name a few. Somewhat lengthy calculations can be required to most efficiently determine the correct coupling type and size based on these factors. The new online coupling configurator at www.rw-america.com allows for easy, registration free, selection of the appropriate coupling based on simple questions and easily identifiable features shown in product images. Whether it is high precision couplings, vibration damping couplings, line shafting or mechanical torque limiters you require. Proper coupling selection is made easy with this new tool.
