Controlflex the ideal encoder connection

Controlflex the ideal encoder connection
A rotary encoder, also called a shaft encoder, is an electro-mechanical device that converts the angular position or motion of a shaft or axle to an analog or digital code. There are two main types: absolute and incremental. Since they do not transmit torque, the connecting shaft ...

Full of Air

Full of Air
The Challenge was to develop a flexible shaft coupling that could be used in the drive assembly of a “Aerator” used in the oxygenation of water in fish spawning ponds and small lakes. Aeration is especially required in times of hot weather where the oxygen concentration within the water can fall and have a detrimental effect on spawning....

Flexible Rotary Solutions
Specifying the right flexible shaft coupling for an application can be a technical challenge for the engineer, particularly as there are also so many designs on the market.  Shaft size, torque capability, angular and parallel shaft misalignment, not to mention material and attachment, all add to the myriad of parameters that narrow down choice....

Two function clamping in one !

Two function clamping in one !
An excellent example of our specialist capability is displayed in the development of the axial tensioner ETP-UNIGRIP which was developed to be used within a packaging machine.  The application was to secure circular cutting knives which where originally held in place with spacers and multi-bolt mechanical shaft clamping devices....

Stainless steel offset shaft couplings

Stainless steel offset shaft couplings
Shaft Couplings used within determined industries sometime calls for customised materials to be compliant with special regulations and requirements. Examples of this include packaging machines for the food and pharmaceutical industries well as coating machinery under vacuum conditions....

Schmidt offsets like no other coupling.

Schmidt offsets like no other coupling.
Many engineers come across the familiar problem of shaft misalignments within driven shaft applications. In some cases the parallel offset of the shafts are above and beyond the capabilities of standard shaft couplings and can often result in punitive drive shaft length, or elaborate ...
