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, [...]
