Zero-Max released its new line of composite disc couplings. These CD couplings feature a new design along with Zero-Max’s proprietary composite disc design and are RoHS compliant. The couplings are available with aluminum hubs for low weight and low inertia and are typically used for Servo motors.
The newly designed CD couplings are available in clamp-style hubs with or without keyways and are available in a wide range of sizes and styles including Single Flex and Double Flex. The CD couplings have speed ratings from 4,400RPM to 17,000RPM and have torque capacities ranging from 40 Nm to 1436 Nm. Pricing is based on quantity and customization, but an aluminum clamp style coupling starts around $200.
A bold, gold, open-air coupe may not be the ticket to automotive nirvana for every consumer, but Lexus’ LF-C2 concept car certainly turned heads at the recent Los Angeles Auto Show. What’s more, it may provide a glimpse of the luxury automaker’s future.
The complexity of diesel engines means optimizing their performance requires a large amount of experimentation. Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is a very useful and intuitive tool in this, and cold flow analysis using CFD is an ideal approach to study the flow characteristics without going into the details of chemical reactions occurring during the combustion.
