High overload protection in a stainless-steel design
Made for wash-down applications in packaging, food and beverage industries, this coupling protects from overload with a patented, backlash-free ball detent system that disengages within 1-3 mse when an overload is detected. It comes in single position, multi-position, load-holding and free-wheeling versions, which are preset in the factory to a customer-specified disengagement torque. They can also be adjusted after installation. They are built with a stainless-steel bellow that compensates for axial, angular and lateral misalignment simultaneously. It has a low mass and weight, so there's a low moment of inertia. It comes in a torque range of 0.2-1,800 Nm (1.8 to 15,930 inch lb), and both shaft hubs are custom-bored for shaft sizes from 4-80 mm (0.25-3.125 inches).
Festo's BionicKangaroo combines pneumatic and electrical drive technology, plus very precise controls and condition monitoring. Like a real kangaroo, the BionicKangaroo robot harvests the kinetic energy of each takeoff and immediately uses it to power the next jump.
