Rimtecs zero-backlash couplings provide
servo-quality stiffness and low inertia for highly dynamic servo and vector drives
but without the misalignment problems that are common with traditional metal bellows
This high-performance line
incorporates a unique taper lock design, which self-centers the motor shaft when
assembled, and self-loosens to easily release when disassembled.
Compared to ordinary taper locks, this special
clamping style is extremely cost effective in conjunction with Rimtecs high-end
couplings it achieves highly accurate manufacturing tolerances, dramatically
reduces bearing wear, slashes downtime, and practically eliminates the need to inventory
|Metal bellows couplings transmit torque from
159.3 lb-in (18 Nm) to 44,250 lb-in (5000 Nm), on shaft sizes from .04 inches (1 mm) up to
4 inches (100 mm).
