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
Some of our culture's most enduring robots appeared in the 80s. The Aliens series produced another evil android, and we saw light robot fare in the form of Short Circuit. Two of the great robots of all time also showed up: The Terminator and RoboCop.
Optomec's third America Makes project for metal 3D printing teams the LENS process company with GE Aviation, Lockheed, and other big aerospace names to develop guidelines for repairing high-value flight-critical Air Force components.
This Gadget Freak review looks at a cooler that is essentially a party on wheels with a built-in blender, Bluetooth speaker, and USB charger. We also look at a sustainable, rotating wireless smartphone charger.
