Learn about the basic design, function, and handling of R+W ball-detent torque limiters and safety couplings, including how to properly adjust the disengagement torque value, and re-engage fully disengaging versions.
See more about this Case Study on our news page; Drive Lines were part of the design and build process for the Ipswich Flood Defence system - and these mitre gates are a vital component of the wider system designed to protect the area from the risk of flood damage. This video shows [...]
This fantastic video shows the Milmeq plate freezer in action; in the video - starting from 1min 6sec in the link below - you can see the Grob LinearChain in action, sliding the boxed food forward into the freezer compartments. This is an ideal application for the LinearChain, suited to high loads, compact spaces and [...]
This video from our partners at Grob showcases their product range well, and the fantastic ongoing support and development their highly trained team offer; we are proud to be their UK representatives for the precision products they manufacture - more information on which you can find on our full product range pages or by downloading [...]
Meet Kai Kupplung - the latest creation from the team at R+W, created to explain everything there is to know about couplings, the applications and variety of uses for couplings, and the intricacies of design.
This plate freezer was possible thanks to the linear chain range from Grob; as the UK distributor of Grob's linear product range we know that not every application suits traditional linear drive options - and if you have limited space but still require a push, as well as a pull, capability from your [...]
In June and July, R+W built the world’s largest mechanical coupling with an outer diameter of 4,000 mm. Guinness is still checking whether it qualifies for the World Record as the “world’s biggest mechanical torque limiter”. The safety coupling – an STF 20.000, 470 mm long – is destined to protect two six-megawatt [...]
