Precision hub and shaft clamping
One of the most innovative products on the market, the ETP product consist of a double-walled hardened steel (in some cases stainless steel) sleeve, which is filled with a pressure medium. The precision machine housing contains a threaded pressure screw, that when actuated, moves an internal piston that in turn provides the pressure adjustment.

Self reversing screws
A traditional lead screw and nut combination requires the driven screw to change its direction of rotation to enable the nut to return to its original start position. However, in certain applications, it may be advantageous to maintain a single direction of rotation of the screw but still have the nut return to the start position.

Amazing shaft offset capability
The Schmidt-Kupplung is a compact, torsionally stiff performance shaft coupling that compensates for large and variable parallel shaft offset without side loads during operation.
By its design, the extreme shaft offset capability combined with a small D.B.S.E. (distance between shaft ends) makes the Schmidt-Kupplung quite unique.
