Shaft couplings for every area of application

By | October 18th, 2018|Couplings & Torque Limiters|

  Mechanical engineering is multifaceted, as are its applications. Each application is unique and demands flawless machine design. Individual components in the plant therefore should be optimally selected for it – particularly vital components such as couplings.   What does a coupling do?   Simply put, a coupling is nothing other than a connection between [...]

Increasing plant uptime

By | August 21st, 2018|Couplings & Torque Limiters|

 Steel production is designed as a continuous process, which means that you need components you can rely on. One example which is historically known to require a lot of maintenance is the pairing of roller conveyor drives with torsionally flexible couplings.  A maintenance free alternative which can reduce the down-time, and associated loss of production, [...]

Why choose Combined Bearings?

By | July 23rd, 2018|Applications, Couplings & Torque Limiters|

Combined bearings are a cost effective guide solution for all kinds of lift systems, platforms and cantilever loads. The combined bearing system involves a radial bearing - to take out high moment loads - and a smaller, axial roller to eliminate side movement. They are often used to guide screw jack lifting and sliding systems, [...]

The concept of the machine tool

By | July 16th, 2018|Couplings & Torque Limiters|

Machine tools are important types of machines, used throughout the mechanical engineering field. Most can be categorised into one or more of milling machines, drills, lathes, grinders, saws, shaping machines, and gear cutting machines. Another grouping contains erosive machine tools, such as laser, water jet, wire and sinker EDM (electronic discharge machining). New technologies, enabling [...]

Industrial couplings: unsung heroes of the drive train

By | July 17th, 2017|Couplings & Torque Limiters, News|

Matching a coupling to its duties in any given drive train requires skill, expertise and insight. The coupling may be required to accommodate misalignment, ensure safety, absorb shock loads and perform other functions too. Ian Carr at specialist engineers, Drive Lines, explains the features and benefits that different industrial couplings from the R+W range offer, [...]

Dynamic balance improves motion systems’ performance

By | July 17th, 2017|Couplings & Torque Limiters, News|

High speed precision motion systems have to have dynamic balance, otherwise they will vibrate in use, lose precision, suffer excessive wear and fail prematurely. Ian Carr of Drive Lines Technologies in Bedford reviews procedures and techniques for balancing high speed precision couplings. Precision drive systems are generally required to have a relatively long working life, [...]
