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
The 100% solar-powered airplane Solar Impulse 2 is prepping for its upcoming flight, becoming the first plane to fly around the world without using fuel. It's able to do so because of above-average performance by all of the technologies that go into it, especially materials.
With major product releases coming from big names like Sony, Microsoft, and Samsung, and big investments by companies like Facebook, 2015 could be the year that virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) finally pop. Here's take a look back at some of the technologies that got us here (for better and worse).
Good engineering designs are those that work in the real world; bad designs are those that don’t. If we agree to set our egos aside and let the real world be our guide, we can resolve nearly any disagreement.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
