Shaft couplings for every area of application

  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

 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, [...]
