performance servo motor applications, CD couplings provide a combination of
high dynamic load capacity and high torsional stiffness for system operation.
The working part is made of a composite material with a design that withstands
the stress and punishment of a servo motor. Also important to sustainability is
the CD coupling's maintenance-free design. Zero-Max says it ensures long trouble-free system operation in automated 24/7
lights out applications.
operating features include: zero backlash for reversing loads, smooth operation
at high speeds and compact size with a clamping system that fits most applications.
couplings are available in many models and sizes including custom designs for unusually
large and challenging applications such as wind turbines. Standard models and
sizes include single and double flex models with clamp style hubs with or
without keyways. The torque capacities range from 40 to 1436Nm with speed
ratings from 4400 to 17,000 RPM.
CD couplings are environmentally friendly and are manufactured of RoHS
A simple new chemical method for repairing and recycling notoriously difficult carbon fiber composites has been developed by the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research. An entire component can be completely recycled, including reclaiming its expensive carbon fibers for reuse.
In today’s connected world we are seeing the beginning of connected homes, smart grids, self-driving automobiles, drones, and many other amazing devices. Out of all the soon-to-be connected devices, which device poses the greatest dangerous to its users and society?
