Packaging machines are using more and more servomotors than ever before. As speeds increase, so does the stress on the mechanical components. Proper coupling selection is even more critical to achieve the higher speeds and greater accuracy of these new designs.
Composite Disc (CD) couplings from Zero-Max have proven themselves in countless applications that require both high reverse loads and high speeds. The working part of these couplings is made from a composite material designed to withstand any punishment a servomotor can dish out.
CD Couplings from Zero-Max have the ideal combination of high torsional stiffness and high dynamic load capacity providing engineers with the right combination to make their designs run faster, while maintaining accuracy.
In comparison, bellows style couplings have high torsional stiffness specifications but are too brittle to withstand punishing high speed operation. Beam style couplings have low torsional stiffness specifications which limit machine speed and accuracy.
CD Couplings address the challenges of the latest servomotor driven designs with precision positioning under high reverse loads and reliable 24/7 operation. In addition, CD couplings provide good chemical and moisture resistance in hostile operating environments that prove difficult or impossible for elastomeric or steel disc couplings.
CD couplings are available in many sizes for virtually every servo motor packaging application. No packaging application is too large, too small or too difficult for a CD coupling. Zero-Max has the design resources to provide imaginative solutions for virtually every need including special designs.
