provide precision for parallel offset shafts, and transmit constant angular
velocity and torque in a wide range of parallel shaft misalignments. They are
used in a variety of machine applications such as printing, embossing, paper
converting, pharmaceutical and automated assembly systems.
in design, the couplings keep out contaminants and foreign matter, enabling the
couplings to be used in less than ideal operating environments.
Offset couplings are designed to handle high amounts of parallel offset up to
17 inch and are available with torque capacities up to 459,000 inch-lb. They
impose no side loads on shafts or bearings and eliminate radial shaft
The promise of the Internet of Things (IoT) is that devices, gadgets, and appliances we use every day will be able to communicate with one another. This potential is not limited to household items or smartphones, but also things we find in our yard and garden, as evidenced by a recent challenge from the element14 design community.
If you didn't realize that PowerPoint presentations are inherently hilarious, you have to see Don McMillan take one apart. McMillan -- aka the Technically Funny Comic -- worked for 10 years as an engineer before he switched to stand-up comedy.
