This coupling variant was designed for machining spindles, flying shears and other applications with shock loads that can't have any backlash. The couplings have conical sleeve hubs for keyless torque transmission in highly dynamic, reciprocating loads. They work well with high-speed applications with frequent load reversals or stops, with no backlash characteristics and a high clamping force and concentricity. They have a positive stop on the conical ring, which ensures clamp screws will tighten to the right torque during installation, but the ring can't be tightened more than needed, so they are much easier to remove from shafting. Sizes range from 10 Nm (89 lbs-inch) to 2150 Nm (19027 lbs-inch), and can take English or metric bores with 6- to 80-mm diameters.
Design collaboration now includes the entire value chain. From suppliers to customers, purchasing to outside experts, the collaborative design team includes internal and external groups. The design process now stretches across the globe in multiple software formats.
A new high-pressure injection-molding technology produces near-net shape parts with 2-inch-thick walls from high-performance materials like PEEK, PAI, and carbon-filled polymers. Parts show no voids, sinks, or porosity, have more consistent mechanical properties, and are stronger.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
