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
Researchers working with additive manufacturing have said multimaterial techniques will allow industry “to fabricate materials with combinations of density, strength, and thermal expansion that do not exist [yet].”
The term "multiphysics" is used to describe the simulation of multiple types of physics and their influence on one another -- for example, the investigation of the behavior of a chemical in liquid form will involve both chemistry and fluid dynamics.
