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
Producing high-quality end-production metal parts with additive manufacturing for applications like aerospace and medical requires very tightly controlled processes and materials. New standards and guidelines for machines and processes, materials, and printed parts are underway from bodies such as ASTM International.
Engineers at the University of San Diego’s Jacobs School of Engineering have designed biobatteries on commercial tattoo paper, with an anode and cathode screen-printed on and modified to harvest energy from lactate in a person’s sweat.
