RADEX(reg)-NN steel-disc couplings provide zero backlash torque transmission and consist of machined steel hubs and a stainless-steel laminae package. This package allows angular and parallel misalignment and axial travel. Nominal torque ratings range from 130 to 79,650 lb-inches with maximum speeds to 20,000 rpm. There are 13 standard sizes with maximum shaft diameters of 4.5 inches and several hub-to-shaft clamping arrangements.
The new composites manufacturing innovation center is intended to be a source of grand challenges for industry, like the kind that got us to the moon under JFK. These aren't the words its new CEO Craig Blue used, but that's the idea and the vision behind the Institute for Advanced Composites Manufacturing Innovation (IACMI).
