New from HUCO Dynatork, a unique coupling mechanism, the Step-Beam Coupling, combines the torsional stiffness of a straight beam coupling with the lateral flexibility of its helical counterpart. Using a stepped radial slot design the torque capacity is doubled as well as a higher torsional stiffness than its equivalent Helical Beam Coupling.
The Huco Step-Beam is moulded from a plastic capable of withstanding temperatures from -20°C up to 150°C. This provides economic advantage to the customer and gives the coupling a low inertia which, combined with its other performance characteristics, makes it ideal for driving encoders and for applications that require electrical isolation and corrosion resistance. Available in either clamp or set-screw fixing.
