T.E.A. Transmissions has introduced a range of new products in the market for industrial applications.
New components offered by the company include titanium material, magnetic couplings and vibration dampers.
The company has a supplier of titanium material including high-grade medical bar and plate, industrial bar, plate and tubing as well as nuts and bolts.
The couplings consist of opposing discs that are equipped with very strong rare earth magnets.
The torque through the drive disc is automatically transferred to the other disc through the air gap. With no actual contact the couplings are highly efficient while eliminating wear, offering silent operation and reduced vibration as well as allowing for misalignment and torque transfer through walls.
This eliminates the need for seals removing the risk of contamination from one media to the next.
In terms of misalignment an angular error of up to 3° and a parallel offset of up to 6mm can be achieved while retaining close to 100% of torque transmission.
An additional benefit lies in the couplings doubling up as a slip/ safety clutch. When torque limits are exceeded the magnets simply slip, protecting equipment and personnel without wear on the coupling or any heat generation. The slip torque can be fine-tuned by adjusting the hub distance.
Vibration dampers are rubber buffers with hardware in zinc plate or stainless steel and available in many standard sizes as well as configurations. These products can be custom made to order.
