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.
